Judaism

By Corey O'Brien

All about Judaism

Followers are called Jews. Some holy days/holidays for Judaism is Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year which takes place in September or October. The next one is Yom Kippur which is the Day of Atunement. It happens 10 days after Rosh Hashanah. The next one is Passover. What it does is it marks the liberation of the Jews from slavery. One that I really like is Hanukkah. The reason why Jews celebrate Hanukkah is because the oil lasted for eight days instead of one so Jews put candles in the menorah and light the candles. The place Jews worship is called a Synagogue. The worship leader is the Rabbi who leads the Synagogue. The holy book the Rabbi reads from is called the Torah. A belief Jews beleive in is being Kosher. Being Kosher means you cant eat meat, pork, or pork products and no shell fish. The place where most Jews live is in Israel. One thing Jews do to celebrate becoming a Jewish adult is having a bar or bat mitzvah. This is where boys age 13 and girls age 12 can become the eyes of the Jewish religion. A bar mitzvah is for boys while bat mitzvah is for girls. Jews believe in Abraham. They are a monotheistic religion.
