PBS will begin an historical series this evening at 8:00 P.M. entitled "The Story of the Jews, from the Beginning." It is suppose to cover several thousands of years of history of the Jewish people. It will run on Tuesdays from March 25th through April 1st. With Passover not being that far away I think that may be the reason for having it at this time. This evening's first segment of the series is scheduled for 2 hours. I'm not sure if all of the segments will be 2 hours or not. I think it should be interesting and am looking forward to seeing it. I always like things of a historical nature. This historical series was written by Simon Schama, a Jewish professor of history at Columbia. .
