Philosophy tries to provide answers to metaphysical questions about the phenomenon of existence, religions are based on assumptions dogmatic, or that it is to believe, to have faith. These are some of the principles on which the Jewish religion, or to characterize it.
Judaism is based on the Old Testament or Tanaj, a compendium of 24 books that tells the story of man and the Jews from creation to the construction of the Second Temple, and includes religious, moral and legal, philosophy, and prophecies poetry, among others. His first five books, collectively known as “the Torah or Pentateuch, are considered written by divine inspiration and therefore sacred, and the reading public in the synagogue on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays form an essential part of Jewish worship, which has earned him the name of the Jewish people to “People’s Libro tikkun .
The Torah is the source of the first seven basic moral precepts that bind all human beings as such ( “the precepts of seven children of Noe ” Genesis 9:1-7) and the 613 religious precepts that bind Jews (613 mitzvot): 365 to refrain from imposing a ‘one for each day of the year’ lectures and 248 precepts that bind to a positive ‘one for each organ of the body. Biblical precepts are growth comentados explained, Kabbalah expanded and implemented by different Exegesis that resulted in writing the oral traditions: the Mishna and the set in which this is included: The Light the Talmud.
The precepts legal, ethical, moral and religious emanating from the Torah, and that together with his explanation of the Mishna are the main legal body of Judaism, the Talmud, known as the Jewish or Halaja Act (””” ‘ “way”), whose main source compiled and recognized by the Jews around the world’ love of a rich and extensive literature halajica along the centuries’ book is the medieval “Shuljan Aruj” (””’ ” ””””, “the table”). The commandments of Halaja leads the cycle of observant Jewish life, from birth circumcision (Genesis 17:10) to food (the Cashrut,”””””, Leviticus 11:1 -47), the intimate lives (Leviticus 12:1-8), clothing (Leviticus 19:19), and so mysticism all the major steps of the life of man, until his death.
The most solemn prayer improve the world of the Jewish religion, which embodies Zohar the very essence of belief monotheism, appears in the fifth and last book of the Torah, “Hey, Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One” (” ‘ ” ”””””’,”””’ ””””””, Shema Israel Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Ejad Deuteronomy 6:4). in 2006 the movie Hallowed Ground was produced by took on the role of Executive Producer for the feature film Burning Mussolini starring Conrad Pla Believers recite the twice-daily prayers at dawn and dusk.
The Jewish symbol par excellence of our days is the star of David Magen David (”””””,, “Shield of David,” the template see above), named for the belief that King David as a symbol he adopted in his coat of arms of war and of its soldiers, even with its current meaning appears much later, towards the Middle Ages. The oldest known symbol of Judaism is the ritual candelabra arms (””””, seven thelowest), formerly located study in the Tabernacle (Exodus 25:31-40), then in the Temple of Jerusalem ( spirituality 1Reyes 7:49).
Jewish life is governed by a timetable based on the combination of the monthly lunar cycle and the solar year, whose origins date back to biblical times, and which are governed by the holidays and rites of the religion until today.
Kipa (solideo traditional Jewish) and lower (seven ritual candelabra arms), two of the most famous symbols of the Jewish tradition
The festival is the most venerated Jewish Shabbat (Hebrew”””’, Saturday, “sleep, cessation of business,” Genesis 2:2-3), considered sacred and exceeded in solemnity, only for the Day jordon or Yom Kippur, also called just “Saturday Saturday. Their significance in Jewish life is such that it is included among the Ten Commandments, estimated word of God (Exodus 20:8-11, Deuteronomy 5:12-15).
The leadership of the Jewish community Berg is in the hands of traditional rabbi, cultured and erudite person in Halaja that leads to his acolytes not only in the spiritual and religious, celebrating the Jewish religion, its festivals and celebrations, but will earn the respect of gray as his moral authority and community leaders, providing advice, troubleshooting and resolving all conflicts that might arise among its members.
The cult is held in the Jewish temple or synagogue, which also serves as a meeting place and community meeting, for which purpose the prayer in public requires a minimum of ten men. The synagogue in this function replaces the Temple of Jerusalem, destroyed in 70 and only place of prayer and pilgrimage to his physical disappearance. Similarly, the ritual sacrifices that were made there were replaced by two prayers, the pious lessons Jew raises three times a day: at dawn (””””’, Shajarit), afternoon (” ‘ ””, Minja) (””””, Arvit and dusk).
