Bet Breira Samu-El Or Olom 9400 SW 87th Ave Jewish Temple 305-595-1500 Catalina Betancur Fridays 7:30pm, Saturdays 8:45am It is not everyday a student is given a school assignment where they are required to place themselves out of their heads and try to understand another religion. For me, this is probably one of the most refreshing assignments I have had. I chose to visit a Jewish Synagogue located on 94th St and 87th Ave on Friday the 31st at 7:30pm. I have always found myself reading books or watching films about Jews and their history. Unlike many other religions, Judaism does not focus on abstract concepts.
Book 3 contains Psalms 73:1 through 89:52. In this book the psalms discuss God’s enthronement and his temple. They also praise God for his holiness and talk about God deserving our worship. Book 4 covers Psalms 90:1 through 106:48. Most of this book discusses the relationship Israel has with its surrounding nations.
These four sacred spaces are also the senses of divine. First, obviously bible is the most sacred thing in the church. It is a book of structure. This book is guilder for Christians. It teaches christians how to live with the god; how to have a peaceful life in the community; how to enjoy your life without sin; and how to get more to know God to have the faith in God.
Judaism is a monotheistic religion, which Jews only believe in one God. The Jewish holy book is Torah, was the Hebrew scripture, also was known as the oldest holy book in all three. Jews believe that they have special relationships with God. Firstly, they were given the law, the rules of diet, behavior, social intercourse etc. Secondly, they are the chosen people of God, which means they live beyond the rest of mankind.
Mormons also believe in visions, healing, and speaking in tongues. Mormons believe in being honest, true, and doing good for all people. They believe in having kings, presidents, and leaders of the sort. They also believe in honoring and obeying the laws of the land. They believe in worshipping God in the way that they are taught to do so, and allowing others of different religions to do the same without judging them or looking down on them (Mormon,
In front of each pew on the ground are kneeling benches used throughout the service when the priest instructs them to use it for praying. Standing is the preferred posture of prayer in the Orthodox Church. The congregation kneels only at certain moments, such as the Invocation of the Holy Spirit during the Divine Liturgy. Also throughout the church are paintings of saints. The Greek Orthodox Church practices a veneration of icons; reverence is directed toward the person they represent and not the relics themselves .The sanctuary, also known as the altar, is at the front of the church.
Judaism is a monotheism which means that they believe in a single, all-powerful God. This God was the creator of Heaven and Earth, which is different from being the Lord of Heaven and Earth. “The first people to insist upon monotheism, the Jews, throughout their history, found this to be their greatest source of strength.” “It is often suggested that Akhenaten’s religion and Zoroastrianism have influenced the development of monotheism in Judaism.” The second unique aspect of Judaism is the covenant. The covenant was a pact between the Jews and God. The Jews vowed to worship only God and to obey his laws.
God through the covenant with Abraham made a way for the entire humanity to be blessed and in his encounter with God, Abraham developed an unwavering faith that is worth emulating by all who claim to be sons and daughters of God. The purpose of this paper is to draw out some interesting facts about the covenant and its significance in the life of Abraham
Paul wanted us to be aware of the fact that God is not just the God of the Jews but also the God of all peoples. “ Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too,”(Romans 3:29 NIV). Jesus Christ was clear in his instructions to the disciples about the Great Commission.
Was he Jewish? That is still debatable no one knows for sure whether or not he even existed as a real person. If he was real during that time he probably, as a Hebrew, practiced some form of Judaism. How would he have practiced a religion based on his own existence? I have learned a lot from this course especially tolerance and been a little bit humbled by the experience.
