JEWISH BELIEFS

In the Jewish culture the Jews have many different Beliefs. The Judeans' believe in one God who is the only God who rules the universe. Secondly, Judaism is the oldest culture out of Islam, Christianity and Judaism, and has been established for at least 3,000 years. Also, the Jews believe in the Torah or the Hebrew Bible. The Torah means "To Teach" or "To Point The Way". Lastly, Palestine is located in the Middle East of Ancient Israel. As you can see the Jews have many different Beliefs.

THE RABBI

The Rabbi is a very important person in the Jewish Culture. Palestine graduates used the term Rabbi which means "My Teacher" for little honor. In the temples of Jerusalem, all the priestly functions took place. The Rabbis have become similar to the Christian Clergy in the Modern Period. As you can see, the Jewish Rabbi is a very important person to the culture. He is like a leader to them, so they need him to lead the way for them or "to teach" them which is what the word Rabbi means.
