Book Description :

Discover .... Judaism is a monotheistic religion of Jews characterized by the fact that is does represents not only religious and customary, but also an ethical, legal and historical feature of the Jewish people. The word Jew (a Jew, a Hebrew) and Judaism originated from the verb AVOR (the ancient Aramaic-Hebrew language), which means - to cross. It was the name of all the Semitic tribes which, at the beginning of II millennium BC, began to cross the river Euphrates, moving from Mesopotamia towards the Mediterranean. The ancient Greeks called these tribes Hebraia and Romans called them Hebraei (Hebrews, Jews). One day a non-Jew approached to the rabbi Hillel, who lived in the 1st century BC, and asked him to explain the essence of Judaism. Hillel replied: "What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor," and continued, "This is the essence. The rest are comments. Go ahead and learn." (Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Shabbat, 31a). In the narrow sense of the word Judaism is the religion of Jews. In the wider sense Judaism is entire Jewish tradition and culture. Judaism is not monolithic but very diverse: various forms of Judaism exist parallel to each other and are often in conflict. In the modern period, there are many routes within Judaism - religious, political, and cultural. Until 200 years ago, the Jewish religion is realized in a unique manner and included all aspects of life of Jews. Today, one part of Jews who are called Orthodox Jews, continue to respect all the laws and traditions of Judaism, while other parts of Jews don't. These are Conservatives and Reformists. Conservatives believe that the Jewish laws and traditions are changing from the ancient times to the present. The Reform, Liberal or Progressive Jewish movement consider that an individual can choose which laws to abide and what tradition to cherish. There is also a secular, humanistic version of Judaism that studies and cares for the Jewish tradition and history, not adhering to the religious law in practical life. Jews who see their affiliation to Judaism in this way, are emotionally tied to the Jewish heritage that gives them identity. Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn... Who is Considered a Jew?li> First Period: Biblical Judaism Second Period: the Exile to Babylon Third Period: Middle Ages Contemporary Judaism The Holy Bible Jewish Mysticism Jewish Holiday Calendar The Synagogue and Jewish Prayer The Zionist Movement Judaism in the Modern Period (late 18th - 21th century) (c) 2017 All Rights Reserved !

Book Description :

Judaism isn’t a race or even a particular culture or ethnic group. There are about 13 or 14 million Jews spread around the world, including about 6 million in the United States and about 5 million in Israel – so Judaism clearly isn’t “a nation.” So what does it mean to be Jewish? Here are the basics: Being Jewish (being “a Jew”) means you’re a Member of the Tribe (an M-O-T). The tribe started with a couple named Abraham and Sarah about 4,000 years ago, it grew over time, and it’s still here today. You can become part of the Jewish tribe in two ways: By being born to a Jewish mother or joining through a series of rituals (called converting). Judaism is a set of beliefs, practices, and ethics based on the Torah. You can practice Judaism and not be Jewish, and you can be a Jew and not practice Judaism. Whether you're interested in the religion or the spirituality, the culture or the ethnic traditions, Judaism For Dummies explores the full spectrum of Judaism, dipping into the mystical, meditative, and spiritual depth of the faith and the practice. In this warm and welcoming book, you'll find coverage of Orthodox Jews and breakaway denominations Judaism as a daily practice The food and fabric of Judaism Jewish wedding ceremonies Celebrations and holy days 4,000 years of pain, sadness, triumph, and joy Great Jewish thinkers and historical celebrities Jews have long spread out to the corners of the world, so there are significant Jewish communities on many continents.

Why are we here? How should we live? What happens after we die? Why does evil exist? Religion For Dummies explains how the world’s great religions answer questions that persist through generations.

With wonderful wit and incredible wisdom, they host a daily talk show which reaches nearly 4 million homes in the New York area, and have appeared on numerous TV and radio shows.

You’ll explore: Religion's role in the family and in the workplace The beliefs and practices of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and other religions Religion's impact during major passages in life such as birth, death, and marriage How to join a religion and how to pray How religion can help you deal with issues in every day life such as conflict, adversity, marriage, divorce, and more Religious rituals and ethics Religion for Dummies touches on lesser-known religions (such as, Zoroastrianism, Jainism, Sikhism). It explores how people of various faiths pray, celebrate life and death, and view moral issues. The book does not tell you what to believe, but rather encourages you to live as you believe and let your religion infuse every aspect of your life. It doesn’t give simple answers to haunting, complex questions; it helps you find your own answers and pursue your own spiritual path!

From the Qur’an to Ramadan, this friendly guide introduces you to the origins, practices and beliefs of Islam, including: Muhammad, the man and the legend The Five Pillars of Wisdom The Five Essentials beliefs of Islam The different branches of Islam and Islamic sects The Qur’an and Islamic law Islam throughout history and its impact around the world Professor Malcolm Clark explores the roots of Islam, how it has developed over the centuries, and it’s long and complex relationship with Christianity. He helps puts Islam in perspective as a major cultural and geopolitical force. And he provided helpful insights into, among other things: Muhammad, the Qur’an and the ethical teachings of Islam Muslim worship, customs, and rituals surrounding birth, marriage, and death Shi’ites, Sunnis, Sufis, Druze, and other important Muslim groups Islam in relation to Judaism and Christianity In these troubled times, it is important that we try to understand the belief systems of others, for through understanding comes peace.
