Jewish Faith
Orthodox


    Orthodox Jews are dominated by traditional beliefs and do not believe in modern forms of Judaism that if Jews wish to have their Jewish identities kept in tact they must stick by their traditions.

    Orthodox Judaism teaches that traditional Jewish law, as given by Moses by Yahweh in the form of the Torah, is the ultimate religious authority that binds all Jews.

    In addition to reverence for the Torah and Talmud, they follow Kashrut a dietary code with seriousness. They eat only Kosher foods listed in the book of Leviticus.

    They also pray daily, but the core of Jewish worship is the weekly observance of the Sabbath. On Sabbath all work stops. All meals are prepared beforehand as the entire day is spent dedicated to worship and rest.
