900: In a handwritten scrawl, an anonymous Palestinian Jew composes a Haggadah, now one of the oldest surviving versions on earth. The Haggadah finds its way into a Cairo synagogue's genizah, and is excavated 2477 years later by the Ango-American rabbi Solomon Schechter. Tonight, it is in the archives of the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City.

1000: The world's Jewish population is 1.3 million, about 0.5% of the total global population.
