Study Guide for Judaism    Shema- “Hear”, Judaism’s most basic statement of faith, found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and in two  shorter passages.   Orthodox Judaism- Jews who maintain the traditional practices and beliefs as well as mystical  teachings. They are considered to be the “ultra orthodox” Jew.  Reformed/Reform Judaism- Came about in the 19th century. This Jewish group was referred to  as “God inspired”.  Torah- “Teaching” or “Law”; the first five books of the Jewish Bible; more broadly, God’s  teaching and revelation.   Bar Mitzvah- A celebration when a boy would turns 13 and officially becomes a man. Because  of this, he is no longer under his father’s responsibility.   Synagogue- The Jewish temple that is referred to as the “house of worship”  Rosh Hashanah- A holiday in September that celebrates the New Year which refers to creation  and renewal.   Yom Kippur- A holiday that is celebrated 10 days after Rosh Hashanah and is considered to be  the day of atonement when you ask for forgiveness from God.   Chanukah/Hanukkah- A holiday that celebrates the victory for religious freedom and the miracle  of God supplying 8 days of oil that only should have lasted a day and the only holiday that is not  included in the Old Testament.   Purim- A holiday when God uses Queen Esther to save the jews from genocide.   Passover (pesach)- A holiday that celebrates God freeing the Jews in Egypt from slavery which  lasts a week.   Haggadah- The instructions for Passover.

Shabbat- A day that is reserved for worship throughout the week.    Importance of the idea of Covenant in Judaism- The Covenant is considered to be the heart of  Judaism that connects God and His people. This Covenant is expected to be faithfully followed  because it is God’s grace and His free choice.   Jewish concept of the Messiah- In Judaism the Messiah is referred to as someone who is  physically present and their hope, which comes strictly from Israel, is still important today  amongst the people.   Importance of Jewish Tradition- Faithfully following rituals and practices is of the most  importance in the Jewish tradition. Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are held for males and females who  turn 13, entering adulthood. As for marriage, the groom is to crush a glass symbolizing the fall of  the temple and divorce is strictly permitted. As for death, the services are to be simple and  haste, and cremation is permitted as well. A Jew’s wish is to be buried in Israel because that is  where resurrection will occur. Jew’s are permitted to eat certain meats and their attire consists  of Tallis, Tefillin, and a Yarmulke.   3 sections of the Hebrew Scripture- The three sections of the Hebrew Scripture are the Torah,  the Prophets, and the Writings.   Book Questions-   1. Throughout the history of the Jewish community, they have had multiple times to  become completely distinguished as a group. However, being God’s chosen  people, they are always returning no matter the consequences. The history of the  Jewish community is much like a rollercoaster; they have been liked in multiple  ways and disliked. This is similar to the exile of the Jews from their land and then  the restoration of the Jewish community to their land. No matter what the
