The story of how the nation of Israel came to be is a drama filled with heroes and villains, promises broken and kept, bloody battles and miraculous events. But above all, it is a story about hope--the hope of a people who dreamed of a Jewish homeland for thousands of years and, in 1948, willed the dream into reality.
