There is a Jewish story everywhere

There is a Jewish story everywhere?

Is this a chutzapadik statement?  What makes us think so?

It is based on three major assumptions:

1) Jews are widely-traveled.  Whether because we were forced by oppressors to convert to other religions or to flee, or because we sought opportunities in other countries, Jews have been on the move throughout history.  And wherever they have gone, they have left traces.

2) The Hebrew Bible has worldwide influence.  Almost wherever you go, you will find place names that are taken from the Bible.  Similarly, you may find art, in any of its many forms, inspired by the Bible.

3) The modern nation of Israel has relationships with countries throughout the world.
