    He is such a great public speaker! Definitely worth watching and makes history a billion times more interesting even for people who don’t particularly enjoy history. He provided a lot of great information and even has a great sense of humor 🙂 thank you for sharing these videos!

He even has a great sense of humor 🙂 He provides so much information and makes learning much easier since he communicates so well with his audience. Thank you!

  3. Thanks for the kind words! I’m pretty sure these last two comments were both written by the same person, but it’s nice to see the videos are appreciated. HMA

  5. I enjoyed very much this lecture, especially the historical setting. I was curious about Benjamin of Tudela exploring the world before Marco Polo. Thank you from Italy!

    I wish you could also post the lecture notes (the PowerPoint) will be much easier to follow this and all of your other amazing lectures.

    1. Hi Naomi–sorry, I don’t think I can do that with the PowerPoints because of Fair Use Copyright restrictions. Good news is the TorahCafe version is often available, and they edit them nicely to highlight the PPTs. Also, I’ll see what I can do about making the Prezis available. HMA
