Judaism

Judaism is one of the oldest religions, founded by Moses and Abraham, along with their disciples.

The Torah, also known as their Holy Book. Inside the Torah, the Talmud holds all the Jew's laws, called the Ten Commandments of Moses, which all Jews should live by. In churches, or synagogues as the Jews call it, Rabbis , or preachers, pray and preach the Torah for the Jews. Jews believe that the Messiah is yet to come. THey believe that Jesus was a priest that did good things/deeds in the name of the Messiah.

The Jews have many holidays, but the most important ones are known as the Bar Mitzvah, Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah, Passover, Sabbath, and Purim.

Jesus could be considered one of the founders besides Moses, seeing how he was a Jew, but just not the Messiah. The Jews believe that the Messiah will take them all away and bring them to Heaven, which is the afterlife. It's kind of what the Christians think also.

Moses was born in Egypt, freeing the Jews and taking them to the Promised Land, which is Israel, when he was older. Israel is where Jesus was born, so that is where Judaism started. Jews are also required to make at least one pilgrimage to Israel to worship.

Women really had no role, except to worship God, their deity. They also had to give birth to healthy boys, and take care of boys, while at the same time maintaining the household.

There are four types of Jews, conservative, Hasidic, orthodox, and reformed Judaism.

Did you know that at the age of thirteen, a boy becomes a man in the ritual/celebration of a Bar Mitzvah.
