Journal Entry 2 Dear Journal, I am amazed every day at how much the Jewish people have gone through. The origins of Jewish Americans is very interesting. Jewish history began with the beginning of creation, "'In the beginning, God created the universe.' (Gen, 1:1)" (Fort, 2009, ¶ 5). The first five books of the bible are the foundation for my faith and they are called the Torah. Since the beginning, the Jewish people have not had a homeland. They have moved from country to country avoiding persecution. (Fort, 2009). After the destruction of Jerusalem, the Jewish people resettled throughout the entire world. They became separated into two different subgroups, Ashkenazim and Sephardim. Ashkenazim Jews were those that lived in Germany, France, Eastern Europe and Russia. Sephardim Jews were those that lived in Iberian peninsula, North Africa, and parts of Middle East. In 1492, when King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella took reign over Spain because the Queen wanted to make Spain a nation that only practiced one religion. On April 20, 1942 it was announced that all Jews must either convert or leave the country. This began the migration of Jews to America. (Fort, 2009).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
