The Jews revolted against Rome in 66 CE. After four years of fighting the Romans put down the rebellion in 70 C.E. and destroyed the Second Temple in Jerusalem. The Romans massacred much of the population. Though some Jews remained in Israel, most fled the country, thus beginning a two-thousand year odyssey in the Diaspora.
