Judaism Diana rychtarczyk

Origin: Abraham is the father of Judaism. He believed that there was only one creator of the universe. Judaism is similar to Christianity because they both believe in only one God.

The Torah

Major Beliefs: The torah is the five books of Moses, which tells the story of the origins of the Jews and explains Jewish Laws. Jews warship at synagogues where they come together as a community and have prayer services.

Sects: Judaism is separated into branches, including the Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist. Orthodox jews are the most traditional.

Bar Mitzvah

Key Holidays: Yom Kippur is the holiest holiday day for Jews. During Yom Kippur Jews do not eat or drink for 25 hours. The purpose is to reflect on past years and gain forgiveness from God for one's sins. A Bar Mitzvah is the age where a person is held responsible for their actions and is qualified to marry.
