Judaism

God will wipe away tears from off all faces.

About Jewish Culture

Judaism was originally practiced in ancient Palestine. 14 million people still practice Judaism today.Abraham was the founder of Judaism 7th century BCE. One of the Jewish sacred text is the Tanakh. It consists of the same books as the Christian Old Testament, although in a slightly different order and with other minor differences. The Torah is sometimes used to refer to the entire Tanakh or even the whole body of Jewish writings, it technically means the first five books of the Tanakh. The Halakhah is a religious law that states things that jews can do, eat, and how they live.

Diasporas

The Jewish community has often been on the receiving end of violence, hate, and attacks. The Egyptians enslaved them, the Germans killed them and they were exiled out of Palestine. The events that led to scattering of the Jews are called Diasporas. As Judaism dispersed there were new ways of interpreting practices and holy laws. Judaism and Christianity were once just one religion. Christians and Jews both had different perspectives on things and eventually they split into two religions.

Critical Thinking

Judaism calls for kindness and tolerance. The Diasporas that happened to the Jewish community were because other religious groups like Christians didn't like their religion. Lots of things that happened in history have been blamed on the Jews, like The Black Death. People treated the Jews with much disrespect then enslaved or killed them. A good example of this was the Holocaust. This was Hitlers orders of the persecution of 6 million Jews. I don't really know why people did this to them, maybe it was because the Christians had no religious tolerance for the Jews or because they were just an easy group of people to blame.
