Introduction to Judaism
Judaism is the religion, philosophy and way of life of the Jewish people. Its major commandments and doctrines stem from "Torah”, the first five books of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible). The most important doctrine in Judaism is that God is invisible and immortal. He commands justice and pity. Since God has created human beings according to his own image, all people should be equally respected. Most Jewish religious activities are held at home. Believers mostly pray in Synagogues and the prayer rituals are chaired by knowledgeable believers. For example, Cantors and Rabbis are professional religious instructors who once studied at Yrshiva.
