Religious Beliefs


Judaism The religion of the Jewish people.

Jewish people are considered the Children of Israel. They are an ethno-religious group that are said to have descended from ancient Israelites. The Jewish Israelites trace their lineage back to Abraham. Israel was reestablished as a democratic State in May of 1948.

Today the term Jewish refers not only to descendants but an individual who has formally converted their religion to Judaism. It is difficult to distinguish between the Jewish nationality and religion, Jewish often pertains to a way of life. The term Judaism, is used to encompass an ethnicity and religion and it also in many ways refers to a culture.

There is an estimated 13-14 million Jews worldwide with the vast majority living in the United States and Israel with over 5 million in both the United States and Israel. While approximately 79% of Israel's population is Jewish, only a small percentage of the US's total population is Jewish.

Hewbrew along with Arabic are the two official languages of Israel. Jewish people refer to Hebrew as "the holy tongue". The idea of God as a duality or trinity is heretical for Jews; it is considered akin to polytheism.

Jewish people worship in Temples and follow the Torah or what is known as the Christian's Old Testament.

Halakhah are the oral laws werehich were eventually written in the Talmud. The Talmud was written in Babylonia and is critical to interpreting Jewish laws.
