Background on Judaism

Transcript: Religious Literature and Sacred Writings Origin of the term Judaism The People Who Practice Judaism Key Beliefs of Judaism Background on Judaism Judaism has evolved, and currently shares more secular ties compared to its ancient version. Modern Judaism is referred to as Orthodox Judaism and seeks to merge the core Jewish values of the Torah with the belief systems of the secular world. Today there are approximately 600,000 Orthodox Jews in the United States, plus another 850,000 in Israel, and perhaps another 750,000 committed Orthodox in the rest of the world. This means that there are approximately 2.2 million Orthodox Jews who are indeed Orthodox - that is to say, wholly committed to Orthodoxy. Modern Judaism Original Practice of Judaism Abraham - Father of Judaism Moses - Lead Jews out of bondage; Wrote the Torah; Was given the 10 Commandments by God King Saul - First Jewish King King David - Establishes Jewish nation as God's powerful nation. King Solomon - Builds temple in Jerusalem to honor God; wisest man to live. The Maccabees - Founded Hasmonean dynasty; Reasserted Judaism and expanded Israel Jesus of Nazareth - Redefines God's will for man and brings a religious revolution to Jews and Judaism. Judaism has followed the same set of laws since they were formed at Mount Sinai - at the time of Moses. (Exodus 34:28) The major practical difference is that from the time of Moses to the time of the Babylonians there was a Temple where a number of Temple-related centered practices took place, and there was the land of Israel -- and a good number of Jewish laws applied specifically to the land. ( Exodus 20 – 31:11) Sivers, Peter Von, Charles Desnoyers, and George B. Stow. Patterns of world history. New York: Oxford U Press, 2012. Print "Judaism." Wikipedia.

According to Rabbinic Judaism, a Jew is anyone who was either born of a Jewish mother or who converted to Judaism in accordance with Jewish Law. God created the universe without help God is omnipresent: God is everywhere, all the time. God is omnipotent: God can do anything at all. God is beyond time: God has always existed God will always exist. God is just, but God is also merciful God punishes the bad God rewards the good God is forgiving towards those who mess things up. God is personal and accessible. God is interested in each individual God listens to each individual God sometimes speaks to individuals, but in unexpected ways. In-Depth Analysis of Judaism Judaism was the first tradition to teach monotheism, the belief that there’s only one God. As Judaism evolved, the idea of God evolved, too, focusing on One unknowable, universal, image-less Being, Who, because the universe is framed in Love, requires justice of human beings. The Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). God exists. There is only one God. There are no other gods. God can't be subdivided into different persons (unlike the Christian view of God) Jews should worship only the one God God is Transcendent: God is above and beyond all earthly things. God doesn't have a body Which means that God is neither female nor male. by Chad-Seth Greenidge Changes in Judaism Through the death of Jesus Christ approximately 2500 years ago, the sacrifices and land laws of original Judaism were no longer needed. Jesus Christ had created a new form a Judaism referred to as "exile Judaism". Exile Judaism is a form of Judaism that does not incorporate sacrifices and land rituals. History also suggests that Christianity has stemmed from the core beliefs of Judaism. This is suggested due to Christianity being based on the example of Jesus Christ who was a Jew. Founder of Judaism Jewish history begins with the covenant established between God and Abraham around 1812 BC, during the Bronze Age, in the Middle East. Abraham is considered as the father of the family of Jews. Moses, is also an important figure as he gave the Jews the Torah around 1250 B.C. The Torah contains the laws of God. The term Judaism derives from Iudaismus, a Latinized form of the Ancient Greek Ἰουδαϊσμός or Ioudaïsmos (from the verb ἰουδαΐζειν, "to side with or imitate the [Judeans]"), and it was ultimately inspired by the Hebrew יהודה, Yehudah, "Judah"; in Hebrew: יַהֲדוּת, Yahadut. Major Jewish Leaders 10 Commandments: Can be found in Exodus 20 Torah: First Five Books of the Hebrew Bible Jews associate the origins of Judaism to Palestine, a land that is considered the crossroad of trade between Asia, Europe, and Africa. The core beliefs and knowledge of Judaism were given to Abraham, by the God of Heaven. Historians suggest that Abraham was given enlightenment in his home city of Ur, and spread his beliefs during his journey to Canaan (Palestine). Bibliography

Transcript: Diffusion of Judaism Life and Marriage Jewish Holidays Basic Principles Judaism's founder was Abraham, who made a covenant with God in which Abraham's son Issac would inherit the land of Israel and that Abraham's descendants would become the Hebrews, God's chosen people. The Hebrew God is different in that He is interested in earthly events, specifically with the Hebrews themselves. After the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 CE, Jews scattered far and wide. Those who went into Central Europe became Ashkenazim. Those who went into North Africa and Spain became Sephardim. Death and Stages of Mourning Who is a Jew? The 13 principles of Faith by Moses Maimonides: Major Events in Jewish History Jewish Holidays Continued A place of worship 13 Prinicples of Faith Purim is a celebration of the victory of Mordecai over the evil Haman, who sought to exterminate the Persian Jews. Every year people read the Book of Ester and children eat small cream cheese cookies called hamantashen and stamp their feet when they hear "Haman." Hannukah is a celebration of when the Macabees rededicated the Temple and 1 day's oil burned for 8. A Holy Book Judaism arose on the shores of the eastern Mediterranean over 3,000 years ago, making it one of the world's oldest religions. Children engage in holidays like Hannukah, Purim, and Passover. At Hannukah they pray and get small toys. At Purim they eat hamantashen and stamp their feet when they hear "Haman" at the reading of the Book of Ester. At Passover they ask 4 questions (look up "Passover: 4 questions"). Judaism is one of the first monotheistic reigions, with it's followers believing in one God who protects and blesses His chosen people, the Hebrews. There are three sects: the Orthodox who believe in preserving the old ways, the Reform who believe in adjusting Judaism to fit the modern world, and the Conservatives who are in the middle. Worldwide Density Map Timeline Like Christians, Jews have a weekly day of rest going from just before sunset on Friday to when 3 stars are out on Saturday. 39 things are prohibited on Shabbat such as lighting a fire or plowing. If someone life is in danger, a Jew isn't simply allowed but required to break any law necessary to save them. Passover is a 7 day holiday comemerating the exodus from Egypt. Matzo is eaten instead of leavened things. A seder or home service is conducted, with each food symbolizing an aspect of Egyptian slavery. Founder Synagogue Pictures Shabbat The Jewish temple is called a synagogue. It is usually comprised of a large prayer hall with smaller rooms of study. The prayer leader is called a hazzan and stands at a desk called a bimah. A Jewish marriage is a contract between the man and woman, with the 2 souls becoming 1. Engagment is a contract signed by either the couple or their parents. Marriage occurs in 2 ceremonies that originally happened separatly: a betrothal (a ring or other object) and the ceremony itself. The groom stepping on the glass symbolizes the destruction of the Temple. A complete set of Tanakh scrolls Aninut is "intense mourning" when the person is still disoriented with shock. Avelut has 3 stages as well: shiva, a 7 day period of recieving visitors; shloshim, a 30 day period where mounrers don't attend marraiges, religious festival meals, and men don't shave or get haircuts; and shneim asar chodesh, a 12 month period observed by those mourning a parent. According to tradtional Jewish law, a Jew is anyone who has a Jewish mother or who has converted to Judaism. The requirements for conversion are: circumcision for men, immersion in a ritual bath, and offering a sacrifice to God in the Temple. These acts need only be observed by 3 Jewish men (aged over 13). Judaism High Holy Days are days that center on forgivness. Rosh Hashanah is the 10 days leading up to Yom Kippur where Jews are commanded to attempt to atone for sins they have commited through the year, whether voluntary or not. Yom Kippur is when Jews pray and fast for forgivness. Monotheism or Polytheism? The Jewish holy book is the Torah, which is part of the larger Tanakh, or Hebrew bible. It states that Abraham made a covenant with God where the Hebrews believe in only 1 god and He protects them. Origins The Great Synagogue in Florence Children in Judaism

Transcript: Why you should convert to Judaism 6/5/20 1. Abraham 1 Abraham is the man that started this journey, he was visited by Yahweh after his father's death. Yahweh told Abraham to destroy his father's idols and worship him and him alone, and to move his family to Canaan. Yahweh promised him that if he did this, he would arrive at a great nation, a land flowing with milk and honey. 2. The Journey 2 The land Abraham and his followers came across at first was nowhere near what Yahweh promised. The climate and environment were undesirable, so they travelled to Egypt. #1 Abraham had two sons, Isaac with his wife Sarah, and Ishmael with his concubine Hagar. Isaac had a son Jacob, and Jacob had 12 sons, who then became the leaders of the 12 tribes in Israel. Jacob's favorite son, Joseph, was sold to be a slave by his brothers out of jealousy. #2 While in captivity though, Joseph rose through the ranks and became the Egyptian pharaoh's chief minister of the land. After a severe drought was brought upon Canaan, Joseph's brothers came to Egypt asking for grain. Joseph chose to ignore what they had done to him and gave them the grain they desired. He then convinced them to stay in Egypt. #3 In Egypt, the Hebrews prospered and were very successful, in fact, there were so many Hebrews living in Egypt that the pharaoh claimed they didn't know Joseph, and then proceeded to enslave the Hebrew people. The pharaoh is believed to be Ramses II. 3 The Torah, the writing that describes all of this taking place All the different routes of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob The upcoming event of Moses receiving the Ten Commandments during the Exodus 3. Exodus 4 Now we have arrived at the story of Moses, who lead the Hebrews out of Egypt and freed them of slavery. When they escaped, they wandered the Sinai Peninsula for 40 years. Moses received the Ten Commandments during this period, which outlined certain laws and governing behavior. Moses had difficulty keeping everyone in order and faithful to Yahweh, Moses also died before he could finally enter Canaan. 4. Canaan 5 After Moses died, a man by the name of Joshua led the Hebrews to Canaan at last. They settled into the area with the Canaanites and Philistines. The Old Testament tells of Joshua defeating these people in battle, but no one is still very sure. Eventually, the Hebrews learned the way of the Canaanites and became farmers and herders. 6 Take your time to rethink your current beliefs Now that you have heard just some of the story, I highly encourage you to join me in the way of Judaism. It won't be an easy transition, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it fast. Think about it, you don't have to make your decision now, but always keep it in the back of your mind. Thank you for hearing me out on Judaism.

Transcript: Judaism God chose his followers as his special people and promised that they would be a successful race living in the Promised Land There is only one God. He holds the power to everything, controlling the events of nature and history based on his designed path, which only he can comprehend. God made a promise to the Hebrews at Mount Sinai where he formed a system of Laws (the ten commandments) and gave them to his followers. The Law contains the guidelines which the faithful shall live by. The people of Abraham were chosen to be the model of behavior for all nations in the rise of the Messiah, who will protect the world and form peace and justice. The majority of the Jewish population is located in North America, then Israel where Judaism was originated. Judaism is widely dispersed among the world; however, with high concentration among Israel and North America. Show worship by praying three times a day: morning noon and night. Depending on how traditional one is, being kosher is a key ritual, by separating cheese and meat in ones diet, and killing all meat in a humane way. Reading the Torah every year 1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 2) You must not make for yourself an idol. 3) You must not misuse the name of the Lord your God. 4) Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 5) Honor your father and mother. 6) You must not murder. 7) You must not commit adultery. 8) You must not steal. 9) You must not testify falsely against your neighbor. 10) You must not covet your neighbor’s house. The flag was adopted on October 28, 1948 from its previous design. White and blue are the national colors in Israel, and the star is the symbol of Judaism. It is unclear what the symbolic meaning behind the "Star of David" is. There are many ideas behind the star, but none are certain. For example, one would claim that two overlapping triangles symbolize the relationship between man and god, being that one triangle symbolizes God, and the other triangle symbolizes humans. Where as another theory is the that the six points on the star symbolize God's control over the six directions: north, south, east, west, up and down. Others have noticed that the star, in contrast to the previous theory, has twelve points, symbolizing the twelve tribes. Matisyahu is a famous, orthodox Jewish rapper. He is most known for one of his songs, One Day and another called a King Without a Crown. Matisyahu is very religious and shows it by wearing a kippah and letting his beard be fully grown even during concert. He believes in God and is faithful to the jewish religion. His first intention of becoming a rapper was to make hip, reggae, Hanukkah music and spread the meaning of the holiday to a large group of listeners. On May 14th, 1948 Israel became its own country, after many years of battle. In 1936, the land of Israel/Palestine was signed to be a jewish and Arab state, but it proved to be unworkable between the two governments. A war took place after this for 2 years between Palestinians and Israelis to claim their own territory. This was Israel's most costly war, with over 6,000 Israelis killed and 15,000 wounded. The war was fought from the boarders of Lebanon to the Sinai Peninsula. Israel is an important land to fight over for jews and many other religions because it holds the sacred temple of Jerusalem within it, which was built 2,750 years ago. Thank you for watching!
