929 words - 4 pages

Judaism and Christianity are two of the many religions of the world. Both of these religions can be found throughout every country in the world. They share many similarities and differences.People who are followers of Judaism are called Jews. There are four different divisions in Judaism. The divisions of Judaism are: Orthodox Judaism, Reformed Judaism, Conservative Judaism, and Secular Judaism. All four of these sects are unified together in one main belief. The foundation of Judaism is the belief in one God.In Orthodox Judaism, the Jews accept the bible as God intended them to. These Jews do not change their belief or living style to suite the mode of modern influences. The Reformed Jews accept the moral laws of the bible and the ceremonies. Reformed Jews do not follow Jewish customs that are not accepted in modern civilization. Instead they move away from the traditional practices in their worship. Conservative Judaism and Traditional Judaism are very closely tied. The Conservative practice is a little stricter in following the dogma of the Orthodox observance.

These are prayers of thanksgiving, prayers of praise, and prayers that ask for things. Jews believe that God will take action in response to prayer, and a teaching from the Rabbis tells us that the more we ask God to help us, the more God will love us. They believe that God will answer their prayers. They also follow the readings of the Torah (it is the belief that there is only one Torah and both the Written and Oral Torah were given to Moses by God on Mount Sinai), which is their Holy Book.The beliefs that became the Jewish faith came about slowly. However, some people were important in making it happen. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, known as the patriarchs are both the physical and spiritual ancestors of Judaism. They founded the religion known as Judaism and their descendants are the Jewish people. According to the Jewish...
