ALL ABOUT JUDAISM

Jewish people believe prayer and in Shabbat, a holy day starting on Friday evening and ending on Saturday evening. They also believe that God considers all people equal and that they should follow the 10 commandments, which are God's rules. Some Jews only eat kosher food which means no pig, shellfish, or mixing of milk and meat products. Also Jews at the age 13 have a bar mitzvah for a boy or a bat mitzvah for a girl which makes them a full member of the congregation. Jewish people pray and worship god in a building called a synagogue. The Jewish worship leader is Rabbi and their holy book is called the Torah. Jewish people also celebrate several holidays including Hanakah, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur. Hanukkah is where they celebrate the miracle of oil and it lasts 8 days. Yom Kippur is when they don't eat for a whole day, dress and act like angels, and ask for forgiveness from God. It is also they're most holy day. The last holiday they celebrate is Rosh Hashanah which is the Jewish new year. One of the Jews holy places is the Western Wall, also called the Wailing Wall and it is in Jerusalem. This is a place where many Jews gather and pray to God. Finally, besides God, Abraham is a common figure to Judaism and they view God as the only God because they are a monotheistic religion.
