The chosen few

09 September, 2013

How literacy helped the Jews: This new book, The Chosen Few, shows how the Jewish people survived and thrived, until the Iberian Expulsion of 1492, because of Torah study and widespread literacy – which became the Jews’ core competency and made them key players in global business and banking.  It was not anti-Semitism that shaped the Jews’ destiny, but literacy.
