What is Judaism?

Judaism is one of the oldest religions in the world. The Jews believe in one God and their tale is located in the Torah. The Christian faith documents this in the Old Testament the Jews do not believe that Jesus was the son of God, however, they do see him as a prophet, as do the believers of Islam. There are many traditions, holidays and customs that Jewish followers enjoy and celebrate throughout the year. A recent one just passed is the Jewish New Year. The sending of Rosh Hashanah cards, such as the ones from Cazenovejudaica is just one way of marking the new year.

The Jewish people are said to be a tribe that was founded by Jacob. He wrestled with an angel and was given the name Israel. His people lived in what was known as the fertile crescent. This was based at the Eastern end of the Mediterranean sea. There were many tribes around at the time. These were the Canaanites, Assyrians and Babylonians. Many of them oppressed the Jews and enslaved them. They sought refuge in Egypt and were initially welcomed before becoming enslaved by them also.

The Jews are known as a wandering people and it was many years before the state of Israel was formed and recognised. There were many other countries where Jews congregated. These were in Spain, Eastern Europe (mainly Poland and Hungary) and also Russia.

Much of the Jews’ history is detailed in the Old Testament, the first part of the Christian bible.
