Judaism began about 4,000 years ago, making Judaism one of the oldest religions in the world. Also in today's time in the past yaer Israel's Jewish population rose by 1.6% , while the Diaspora population dropped by 0.5%. Judaism is a monothiestic religion , meaning they believe in one god. Having 15.1 million followers make Judaism one of the most practiced religions world wide. The foundational text Jews use to practice Judaism is the Torah. Judaism is one out of three of the Abrahamic religions meaning they trace their origin to Abraham or recognize a spiritual tradition connected to Abraham. A Hebrew man name Abraham, is considered the father of the Jewish faith. Judaism is the mother-faith from which Christianity and Islam developed.There are 13 principals of faith these principles of the Jewish faith were formulated by Moses (13th century). Jews way of life contains the duties to God, especially modes of worship and rituals, and to human beings, especially truth, justice and peace. While it believes it is the true faith, Judaism respects other religions and upholds freedom of conscience and belief for all human beings. Jewish Dietary Laws contain of only kosher food kosher meat must come from a permitted animal or bird. (Ham, bacon, pork and shellfish, for example, are not kosher), carefully slaughtered by a pious person. The meat is soaked in water and then salted and rinsed in order to remove the blood.Jews pray three times a day, prayer may be offered at any time. God accepts prayer in any language, but the official language of Jewish prayer is Hebrew.The Jewish calendar1. The Sabbath is a day of rest from work, lasting from sunset on Friday until nightfall on Saturday. Features of the day are the synagogue services and the family gathering at home. Sabbath candles are lit before sunset, and prayers of sanctification are said over wine and bread.2. Pesach (Passover) lasts eight days and marks the deliverance of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. On the first two evenings there is a home ceremony with symbolic foods recalling the bitterness of slavery and the sweetness of freedom. The main Passover food is unleavened matzah, eaten to recall the “bread of affliction” in Egypt. Passover is the time of the barley harvest in Israel.3. Shavuot falls seven weeks after Passover. On Shavuot God gave the Torah at Mount Sinai, so that it is an occasion for renewed dedication to the Divine law. It is the time of the wheat harvest in Israel.4. Rosh Hashanah (the New Year) is the anniversary of creation when God reviews His world and examines the deeds of human beings. The shofar (ram’s horn trumpet) is blown as a call to spiritual wakefulness.5.Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is a 25-hour fast largely spent in prayers for forgiveness and in making resolutions for the future. Yom Kippur falls ten days after Rosh Hashanah.6. Sukkot comes at the end of the fruit harvest in Israel. The sukkah or harvest booth recalls the portable homes of the Israelites in the wilderness on their way to the Promised Land. The sukkah symbolizes the fragility of life and the need for God’s protection. Judaism texts teachings establish freedom by having order and Laws. They believe that without order or laws there is no freedom.many people believe that freedom in their "Messiah" means freedom from the Law. (It should be made clear before going any further, that "Law" is an inaccurate translation for "Torah," as it actually means "revelation" or "instruction" from God.) Freedom in the mind of Paul and other Jews of his time was founded in the events surrounding the giving of the Torah (Exodus 4:22-23; Exodus 7:16; Exodus 8:1). Although the Hebrews experienced a physical freedom when God led them out of Egypt, their true freedom came when they received the Torah. Ask anyone what Moses said to Pharaoh on multiple occassions, and they will probably recall him saying, "Let my people go." However, this is only half the message. As Scripture shows, what God told Moses to say was, "Let my people go, so they may serve me." They were then given the Torah to enable them to do just this. The responsibilities that the leaders have to help the followers with is education.Rabbi literally means “teacher” in Hebrew. In the Jewish community, a rabbi is viewed not only as a spiritual leader but as a counselor, a role model and an educator. The rabbi leads spiritual services, such as Shabbat services and High Holy Day services on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. He or she will also officiate at life-cycle events such as Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs, baby naming ceremonies, weddings and funerals. Even though we know that the most worship practice is in the Torah. We have to know why they practice so much. They practice to help see insde themselfs to see what is their role and there relationship to God.One purpose of pratice is to increase their awareness of God in their life and the role that God plays in their life. If you only pray when you feel inspired (that is, when you are already aware of God), then you will not increase your awareness of God. Observant Jews are constantly reminded of God'-s presence and of our relationship with God, because we are continually praying to Him. Our first thought in the morning, even before we get out of bed, is a prayer thanking God for returning our souls to us. There are prayers to be recited before enjoying any material pleasure, such as eating or wearing new clothes; prayers to recite before performing any mitzvah (commandment), such as washing hands or lighting candles; prayers to recite upon seeing anything unusual, such as a king, a rainbow, or the site of a great tragedy; prayers to recite whenever some good or bad thing happens; and prayers to recite before going to bed at night. All of these prayers are in addition to formal prayer services, which are performed three times a day every weekday and additional times on shabbat and festivals. My opinion is that if you want to do something well, you have to practice it continually, even when you don't feel like doing it. This is as true of prayer for judaism as it is of playing a sport, playing a musical instrument, or writing for us.

AboutHanukkah

When we speak of The Temple, we speak of the place in Jerusalem that was the center of Jewish worship from the time of Solomon to its destruction by the Romans in 70 C.E. This was the one and only place where sacrifices and certain other religious rituals were performed. It was partially destroyed at the time of the Babylonian Exile and rebuilt. The rebuilt temple was known as the Second Temple. The famous "Wailing Wall" (known to Jews as the Western Wall or in Hebrew, the Kotel) is the remains of the western retaining wall of the hill that the Temple was built on.
