Generations: The Story of a Jewish Family

Authored by Aaron Leibel

This novel follows a Jewish family in three generations spanning 1,500 years -- in Byzantine Palestine on the eve of the Arab conquest in 640 A.D., where a Jewish family is forced to leave its ancestral home; in Ruzhany, Poland, in 1659, where a descendant of that family becomes a martyr in a blood libel trial; and in Baltimore and Silver Spring, Md., and Jerusalem, Israel, in the 20th and 21st centuries, where a descendant returns to live in the Jewish homeland and becomes involved in secret Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The book attempts to explain in literary form the enduring attachment of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.
