Ancient Hebrew Achievements
Transcript of Ancient Hebrew Achievements
The historic core of the indigenous community consisted mainly of Arabic-speaking Rabbanites and Karaites. After their expulsion from Spain, more Sephardi and Karaite Jews began to emigrate to Egypt, and their numbers increased significantly with the growth of trading prospects after the opening of the Suez Canal. As a result, Jews from all over the territories of the Ottoman Empire as well as Italy and Greece started to settle in the main cities of Egypt, where they thrived. The Ashkenazi community, mainly confined to Cairo's Darb al-Barabira quarter, began to arrive in the aftermath of the waves of pogroms that hit Europe in the latter part of the 19th century.
Gold, Copper, and Iron
One of the many achievements that the Hebrews have are their findings of gold, copper, and iron. Also, a very underrated achievement the Hebrews did was their invention of gun powder which was later "reinvented" by the Chinese.
They would trade with the neighboring nations. The nearby peoples included: Egypt, Edom, Ammon, Moab,
Midian, Ishmael, Babylonia, and Canaanites in what is now Lebanon. They would trade food, clothing and jewelery.
Hebrew had ceased to be an everyday spoken language by around 200 CE, and survived into the medieval period only as the language of Jewish liturgy and rabbinic literature. Then, in the 19th century, it was revived as a spoken and literary language, and, according to Ethnologue, is now the language of 9 million people worldwide, of whom 7 million are from Israel. The United States has the second largest Hebrew speaking population, with about 221,593 fluent speakers, mostly from Israel.
