Judaism

Judaism is a religion in which there is one God, Adonai. Their holy book is called the TeNakh, and it as three parts: the Torah, and Ketuvim, and the Nevi'im. They pray, study the Torah, and follow God's laws-including the ten amendments. They try to live as moral of a life as possible. They have a tradition called Shabbat, where they rest and pray from Friday night to Saturday night. Their traditional meal is bread and wine. They eat Kosher foods only-that means no pork, shellfish, or meat prepared with dairy. When a Jew turns 13, they have a big party to show that they are becoming an audult-called a Bar Mitzvah for boys and a Bat Mitzvah for girls. The Jews' place of worship is called a synagogue. The worship leader is the Rabbis. Two of their holidays are called Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah. Yom Kippur is the day of atonement-when people apologize for their mistakes. They usually dress in all white, to look like an angel, and they fast, because angels don't need to eat. They pray and overall be extra good people on this day. Rosh Hashanah celebrates the Jewish new year. Jews eat apples dipped in honey, because it's sweet, and they want their new year to be very sweet. A holy city of the Jews is Jerusalem.
