    In the Jewish Biblical History series, the link that is supposed to open “Athens and Jerusalem” opens “The Persian Period” a second time. However, “Athens and Jerusalem” can be found on YouTube. Great videos. Great course.

    Dear Dr. Abramson, I have so enjoyed your videos, thank you.
    My I ask you a question? During your talk on the history of the donut in connection with Chanukkah (fascinating!), you mentioned a 13 Century poet-rabbi, from Provence, who wrote a poem about the Chanukkah donut. I would love to read that poem, and especially share it with my good friend, who makes the most heavenly sufganiyot! Thank you so much.
