Judaism ... Being a Jew

The Jewish faith worshiped is called Judaism and worships the son of God Abraham, also, known as the "Father of the Jewish Nation". The followers are known as Jews. The Jewish Faith is more than 3000 years old. Jews practice their faith Judaism and think of it to be the relationship between them and God, established as "The Children of Israel." Moses spoken to, by God, was made the chosen leader to free the Jews from slavery. There are 3 major languages spoken; Hebrew, Arabic, and Yiddish and 4 major Holy Cities; Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed, and Tiberias. We follow holidays such as Yom Kippur, or Day of Atonement, in which we fast from sundown to sundown. During this time, praying and asking for forgiveness of sins is important. Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year, is celebrated once a year. The first day of the Tishrei. On this day praying and eating of apples and honey, to welcome in a sweet year, are involved. Lastly, Hannukah, Festival of Lights is celebrated to commemorate everlasting light in the temple burned for eight days without oil. The religion is symbolic through their teachings in the Torah, the Tanach, and the Talmud. Jews can be found worshipping in Temples and synagogues around the world but on "High Holy Days" are found at holy places like the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. The Jewish faith worships like other faiths the belief in Abraham and like others practices the worship to one single God, also known as Monotheism.
