Judaism is a religious tradition with origins dating back nearly four thousand years, rooted in the ancient near eastern region of Canaan (which is now Israel and Palestinian territories).
Abraham obeyed God and is called the father of all believers He had 2 sons...Isaac and Ishmael.
The main prophets of Judaism the Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, were the founding fathers of the people of Israel. From among those three Abraham was singled out for special honour in Jewish tradition.
Judaism is one of the oldest religions in the world today. Jewish history extends back through the ancient Israelite and Hebrew people to Abraham. As a timeline of Judaism shows, through centuries and millenniums of suffering, persecution, dispersion, and victory, Judaism continues to exert a profound influence around the world. The basic facts of Judaism are found in its beliefs, history, and practices.
One of the most common rituals is lighting candles just before sunset on Friday night. Reciting certain blessings before eating. Blessing and drinking wine on Shabbat (the Sabbath, which runs from Friday to Saturday)
Temples: • A Jewish "church" is called a synagogue, shul or temple
• A synagogue is a place of worship and study, and a "town hall"
• Synagogues are run by laypeople and financed by membership dues
• There are several important ritual items found in the synagogue
• Non-Jews may visit a synagogue, but dress and should behave appropriately
• The Temple is the ancient center of Jewish worship where sacrifices were performed
Opinion: I select judaism because I think that is a really interesting religion, I read about it and I get interested about the gods, the history, the rituals for me the judaism is a interesting religion.
