What Is Judaism?

Understanding World Religions

This programme provides a basis for developing respect and understanding for Judaism, a religion practiced by about 14 million Jews around the world. Aspects of the religion's history are presented, from the story of Abraham, a patriarch of the Jewish faith, to the establishment of the nation of Israel. Students explore the prayer rituals of Judaism through a visit to a synagogue and the account of a boy preparing for his Bar Mitzvah ceremony. A visit with a family preparing for Passover helps students gain insight into the holidays and celebrations of the Jewish religion. Students also learn about Jewish traditions and beliefs through discussions with rabbis from different branches of Judaism.
