The Jewish people within Poland lived in a self-contained world, with a unique network of religious, social and ...

Our prayers are full of praise for the Creator, echoing the joy and passion of the relationship that was conceived with Abraham, and given birth at Sinai. We relate to God as a loving and perfect father, and as a benevolent and wise king whom we serve. It is a relationship with roots in hist...
  • Interpretations Of Biblical Information
    623 words
    Do you know the moral to the story of the tortoise and the hare? Is it slow and steady wins the race? Or is it that cockiness gets you nowhere?

Interpretations of the bible vary and occasionally get the message wrong, but this variation can be attributed differences of opinion in interpretation. Whether motivated by politics, social presuppositi...

  • Jewish People

  • Traditional Jewish People
    1,709 words
    There are many substantial and vital differences between Judaism and Christianity. Of course there are many similarities, because Christianity emerged from Judaism. However, the emergence was not a direct line. Christianity broke from Judaism, forming a new religion, so it is confusing, however comfortable the thought might be, to believe that the two religions are essentially the same, or to see Christianity as the continuation of Judaism (Ludwig 376). Judaism's main belief is that the people o...
  • Main Object Of Medieval Jewish Philosophy
    687 words
    MEDIEVAL JUDAISM In a review of a Jews in Antiquity by Baile, Martha Himmelfarb writes, "Bible does not minimize the Jews's ubjection to local or distant lords. But, like Salo Baron before him, he strives mightily to dispel the picture of Jewish, medieval life as one long tale of 'suffering and learning. ' Hence the emphasis upon the 'considerable influence in high governing circles' and the significant degree of control over day-to-day life enjoyed by many pre-modern Jewish communities. Hence, ...
  • Said Jacob

  • Jewish Nation
    394 words
    Leon Uris has done an excellent job of presenting the drama covering the events leading up to the German holocaust and the formation of a new Jewish Israel. In Exodus, it is clear to see that Uris sympathizes with the Jewish people. However, he has given an accurate portrayal of the injustices encountered upon Jews throughout history. The treatment of Jews in worldwide ghettos, concentration camps, displaced persons camps, and in dealing with a United Jewish Nation, are horrendous. The reader se...

  • Jewish People
    601 words
    When talking about morality, The Holocaust is the biggest issue to come up. In many countries people are offered freedom, justice, and democracy.

Everyone's morals were taken advantage of, and nobody had say in anything that had happened in this period of time. The Nazis shut out The Jews out of th...
