In Jewish history, the Second Commonwealth is the period during which the Second Temple of Jerusalem was in existence, roughly 530 BCE-70 CE. During this period, when, geographically speaking, the Kingdom of Israel[disambiguation needed] comprised approximately what today are the countries Israel and Jordan, as well as the Palestinian Authority, Judaism was confronted by two major challenges.
