What was life like for the Jews living in the Land of Israel when it was under the rule of the Ottoman Empire?
Jews weren't allowed to build a synagogue, own a gun, or even ride a horse.
Legal rights they were supposed to receive were only obtained through having to bribe Ottoman and Arab officials. Kidnappings, ransoms and thuggery were common. How did these Jews survive the injustice and brutalities? Lior Pasternak
is an Israeli that lives in Japan. He is in the process of publishing a book that outlines all the Jewish history in the land of Israel in the last 3,000 years
. He joins Tamar and gives us all a detailed picture of what life was like under Turkish/Ottoman rule.
