The Northern Kingdom is destroyed by the Assyrians and the ten tribes of Israel are exiled, creating the first Jewish diaspora, or “dispersion.” Over the next 750 years, Jews, because of adherence to their traditions and weak political conditions, will easily be scattered to places around the Mediterranean Basin and beyond. Jewish life in the Diaspora will include prayer and focus directed at Judea, which lasts until the modern day.
