Item description for Jewish Journeys (Armchair Traveller) by Jeremy Leigh...

The 'journey' is at the heart of the Jewish experience. The first description of the earliest 'Hebrew' is Abraham journeying from one land and culture in search of another. Later, when the Jews became a nation, they journeyed together from slavery in Egypt to freedom in their own land of Israel. In both cases it seems the journey was a point of transition, not just from place to place, but through worlds of culture and ideas. Away from Biblical legends, later historical journeys still manage to convey deep stories. This book invites the contemporary reader to consider the vastness of the Jewish journey, to enjoy the reflections of those who recorded their experiences and to place themselves somewhere in the continuum. The book is primarily an anthology of Jewish 'travel writing' from earliest time until the present. Material is drawn from Biblical sources, travel chronicles, biographies, and modern literary reflections. Each selection is introduced, explained and contextualized by the author. The opening and closing chapters link the idea of Jewish travel as well as personal reflections/ experiences of the author's own Jewish journeys.
