Jersalem

Jerusalem is important because it is the ancient capital of Israel and it was the site of the original temple. The Western Wall of the ancient temple remains. This is where the tablets that Moses brought down from Mt. Sinai with the ten commandments were stored in a golden box called the Ark of the Covenant. Jewish people make pilgrimages to this wall. It is also called the Wailing Wall because people grieve the destruction of the temple and other persecution of the Jews.

Sabbath

a Holiday in the jewish relgion is sabbath. Sabbath meal is shared by members of the family. Shortly before sunset, Sabbath candles are lit, generally by female members of the family. The Sabbath meal begins with a kiddush (the sanctification of the Sabbath over a cup of wine) and the breaking of a special loaf of bread called a hallah. Following the meal, grace is recited and Sabbath songs (zemirot) are sung.

Some Reform and Conservative congregations have their worship services following the Sabbath meal and include the lighting of the candles and the kiddush as part of the service. Following the service there is usually a congregational social hour called Oneg Shabbat ("Sabbath delight").

The Torah Scroll is read on Saturday morning and again at the Sabbath afternoon service. The day is ended with a special service of Havdalah ("distinction"), which notes the difference between the sacred and the profane, between the Sabbath and the ordinary days of theweek.
