Jewish History Nerds survey

Josephus Flavius is maybe one of the wildest characters in Jewish history, and that’s saying something. That’s largely because unlike most historians, he didn’t just chronicle the story; as Yael tells Schwab in this week’s episode, Josephus, or Yosef ben Matityahu, wrote himself into the story – and what a story it is. This week, we learn about Josephus and the siege of Yodfat, and they ask, what does it mean for us to write yourself into the story of Jewish history?

This episode was hosted by Jonathan Schwab and Yael Steiner. Our education lead is Dr. Henry Abramson. Audio was edited by Rob Pera, and we’re produced by Rivky Stern.
