Judaism is one of the oldest religions still existing today. People who follow Judaism are called Jewish. Judaism focuses on the relationships between the Creator, mankind, and the land of Israel. Some of their holidays include Passover which is a holiday commemorating the Exodus from Egypt, it also marks the beginning of the harvest season. Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday celebrated for eight days and nights. It starts on the 25th of the Jewish month of Kislev, which coincides with late November-late December on the secular calendar. Some of their highly practiced rituals are going to the synagogue, praying and worshipping their god, and keeping kosher(the Jewish dietary laws). Mikvah (MIK-vuh) is a ritual bath used for spiritual purification. It is used primarily in conversion rituals and after the period of sexual separation during a woman's menstrual cycles.
