Jewish Faith
Ashkenazic


    The Ashkenazic Jews followed the same path as the Roman legions, settling in Italy, France, Germany, Britain, and then moving into Poland and Russia. They became close knit and separate from other communities as they believed they were the chosen people of Yahweh's covenant.

    They followed the demands of the Torah (Law) and Mitzvoth (Commandments). They were under their leaders encouraged to observe these rituals strictly in order to remain unified.
