Item Description:

The terrifying climate of this "holy war" comes to life as Rabbi Wein reads the anti-Semitic sermons with which the Church inspired its knights and warriors. Those speeches, dripping with hatred, leave no surprise as to why the Crusaders killed tens of thousands of European Jews and decimated the Jewish community in the Holy Land. Yet once again, the light of the Jews shone through. Not only did we survive this bloody war, but amidst this chaos, Rashi produced his timeless works of Torah scholarship.

• the splits in the Church that gave rise to the Crusades
• how the Church rewarded its 60,000 "Christian soldiers"
• the anti-Semitic writings of the Bishop of Narbonne
• parallels to Goebbels, Farrakhan, and later anti-Jewish propogandists
