Hinduism
Hinduism is the world's third largest and oldest religion. Even though Hinduism has withstood the test of time from generation to generation and has such a large following, there are several misconceptions about his religion. The history of Hinduisms can be traced back to 5000-10,000 B.C. There are more than one billion people that consider themselves followers of the Hindu religion.

Most of the Hindus live in India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. There is also a considerable presence in other parts of the world as well However, about 85% of HIndus do live in India, and this is why India is also called "Hindustan". The people that follow Hinduism are referred to as "Hindus".

Considering that Hinduism lacks a uniting belief system, there are several uniting elements that bind the followers of this religion. Hinduism has evolved over thousands of years and its' teachings are largely based on the teachings from Vedas. The Hindus believe in one God named as "Brahman" but view other Gods and Goddesses as manifestations of Him. Because of this, in practice, Hindus worship more than one God. Most Hindus worship God in the form of an idol. For example, rivers, mountains, trees, and animals that are useful for human beings are revered in Hinduisms. It is important to note that cows are the most revered animal in the Hindu religion.

There are some specific cultural and societal influences that have made Hinduism vital to the region in which it originated. For example, India is the home of four great religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. The parents, teachers, and food in the culture are considered to be next to God and wasting food is considered to be a very bad habit. Another influencing factor is the policy on money. It is believed to be bad Karma to lend money on interest. Acupuncture and acupressure are also vital parts of the Hindu customs.

Hindus believe in the liberation of earthly existence for several reasons. There are four objectives to Hindu life. These are Dharma,(righteousness), Artha, (wealth), Kama,(desire), and Moksha, (salvation). According to Hindu beliefs, material possessions are not highly valued. Yoga, meditation, vegetarianism, and meditation are the best gifts of the Hinduism world.

Another reason that liberation from earthly existence is important is that Kama is a major factor in the Hinduism world. Karma means your deeds. Hindus believe that our faith depends upon our Karma. Simply put, you reap what you sow. If you do bad deeds than you will have to compensate for it in this or the next life. Related to this factor of Karma, is the concept of reincarnation. A soul dwells in every living thing. Body is mortal but the soul is immortal. When we die, our soul enters a new body and the cycle of life continues until we get salvation. The material objects and the ties to earth are not a consideration to the Hindu religion.

Hinduism is a collective term that is applied to many philosophical and religious traditions that are native to India. The traditions consider themselves to be timeless, meaning that they have always existed. The collection of scared texts, as a whole, are know as Sanatana Dharma, " The Eternal Teaching." The exact beginning point of Hinduisms is impossible to determine because it evolved as time and culture impacted the religious ideas of early India. Many Hindus do recognize a large diversity of Gods and Goddesses, as previously mentioned, and this is referred to as the Hindu, "Trinity.". It is important to note that many people believe that all Goads are actually manifestations of one.

There is much that can be learned by investigating the Hindu religion. The simple fact that this religion has withstood so many years of change and outside influences and has continued to be such as highly followed religion expresses the commitment of the people who follow this religion.

Good evening,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you with this assignment. The following is the information that you requested: (word count of 1,765 )

Judaism

Judaism is one of the oldest monotheistic faiths. Judaism is the religion and the way of life for the Jewish people. The basic laws and tenants of Judaism come from the the first five books of the bible, which is known as the Torah. The most significant tenant of Judaism is that there is only one God, incorporeal and eternal, and this God wants all people to do what is just and merciful. 1 People who believe in Judaism also hold two other beliefs to be very important, that all people are created in the image of God and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

Jewish people believe in serving God by studying, praying, and by observing the commandments that are established in the Torah. This is referred to as a faithfulness to the biblical Covenant and is generally understood to be the "vocation," "witness", and "mission" of the Jewish people.2

The act of praying is a very important part of the day to day life of Jewish people. Daily prayers are said three times a day, in the morning, the afternoon, and after sunset. When a congregation prays together, this takes place in a synagogue. This is the Jewish house for praying and worshiping. There are specific days that are the main days for prayer to be conducted in the synagogue. Mondays and Thursdays are the Sabbath, and what is referred to as the High Holy Days. When services take place in the synagogue on these days, the services includes readings in Hebrew, and these come from the Torah and the Prophets. The services for the Jewish people are given by their Holy Man, who is a rabbi,an ordained religious leader.

Two major events in the lives of Jewish people are what is known as the Bar Mitzvah, for boys, and the Bat Mitzvah for girls. This ceremony is a coming for the Jewish child. The girls' Bat Mitzvah occurs at the age of twelve, while the boys' Bar Mitzvah occurs at the age of thirteen. During this ceremonial coming to adulthood, the boy or girl is called to the front of the synagogue to read a portion of the Torah in front of the congregation.

It is important to realize that the degree of observance is different between the three major contemporary trends in Judaism. The three major contemporary branches are Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Traditional Jewish people observe the dietary laws that are from the Book of Leviticus. These laws prohibit eating meat and dairy products at the same meal, and include the necessity for the meat that is consumed to come from an animal that was treated humanly. There is also a prohibition against pork, shell-fish, and blood.

Judaism celebrates the seventh day of the week as the Sabbath. This day is very important and no work is permitted, except work that is connected with worshiping and the preservation of life and health. The major holidays are the two days of Rosh Hashana, which is the Jewish New Year. This marks the start of the Ten Days of Awe and it ends with the fast of Yom Kippur, known as the Day of Atonement.

In order to become more familiar with this religion, I decided that it was important to visit a place that was significant to the Jewish people and their religion. I visited a local synagogue and spoke with a rabbi.

The rabbi was eager to help me better understand Judaism and the beliefs and customs of this religion. The first question that I asked the rabbi was, "Is there a meaning for the word synagogue?" He replied by saying, "The word comes from the Greek language and means, assembly."

As I interviewed this pleasant man, we walked through he synagogue and he described the different sections of the building. The main sanctuary is a large hall for prayer. There were several smaller rooms. The rabbi told me that these rooms are used for studying, especially for boys and girls who are preparing for their Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs. There was one last room, a small social hall. The rabbi told me that receptions are held in these rooms. This place of worship was quite beautiful.

I asked the rabbi why synagogues do not all look alike. He replied by saying," There are no standards laws that govern the layout of a synagogue, so that is why their is no set architectural design. Some synagogues resemble a Chinese Temple, but there is no set rule for design." The rabbi also added that ,"there is one element that is a must for the interior of a synagogue, that is the table that the Torah is read from. This is called the Torah ark, and it has a cabinet in which the Torah scrolls are kept."

The tour and the answer that the rabbi provided for me were enlightening and helpful. I thanked the rabbi for his time and helpfulness.

One religion that is often compared and contrasted with to Judaism is Christiantiy. These two religions are both quite old and steeped in history and traditions. Christianity does have a close relationship with Judaism, both in the historical and the theological sense. Jesus' family followed Jewish customs and Jesus frequently quoted the Hebrew Bible. In addition, Jesus, the twelve disciples, the author of most of the New Testament, and the members of the earliest Christian churches were all Jews. These are the main reasons why there is such a connection and many comparisons made between Judaism and Christianity.

Other similarities between these two religions are the fact that Judaism and Christianity were both founded in Palestine and both religions have a very large following. Christianity is ranked the largest religion with 159 millions followers in the United States alone. Judaism is ranked as the twelfths largest religion, and has a reported 5.6 million followers in the United States. In addition, both of these religions use the Bible as the sacred text.

The modern human authority for Christianity is the pope and the rabbis for Judaism. Another difference is the doctrines that each religion follows. Christianity adheres to the Apostle's Creed, and the Nicene Creed. In contrast, Judaism adheres to thirteen Articles of Faith. One other main difference between Christianity and Judaism is in the nature of God. Christianity believes in the Trinity, one substance and three different people. In contrast, Judaism believes in unity, one substance, and only one person.3

Christianity and Judaism both believe in angels and demons and both believe that Jesus died by being crucified on the cross. The similarities between these two religions have often led to the debate regarding how important are the differences between these religions. Followers for both of these religions have said that the similarities bind the two faiths while the differences make it possible for spirited debates. When I interviewed the rabbi he told me that many of the older generation often like to tell this to their younger family members.

The aspects of these two different religions that have led to lively debates are in some of the following differences. The house of worship for Christianity is known as a Church, chapel, or cathedral, whereas the house of worship for Judaism is a synagogue. Judaism has only two religious leaders, the rabbi and the rebbe. Christianity has many religious leaders that are in rank of importance., the priest, bishop, archbishop, patriarch, pope, pastor, minister, and preacher. Two other major differences are in the sacred rituals and the central religious holy days. The central rituals for Christianity are baptism and communion, while the central ritual for Judaism is observing the Sabbath, wearing the talit and teflin, and prayer services.

Finally, the central religious days and holidays are different. Christianity celebrates Lent, Holy Week, and Easter, while Judaism celebrates Yom Kippur, Days of Awe, and Passover. 3 The major symbols for Christianity are the cross, crucifix, and dove, while the major symbols for Judaism are the Star of David, Chai, and tree.

Judaism is the religion of he Jewish people. This religion is a complex phenomenon of a complete way of living for the Jewish people that combines theology, law, and cultural traditions. The ancient Israelites' entire method of existence was affected by their beliefs that throughout history they stood in a unique relationship with the divine being. The people of Israel believed very firmly that their response to the divine presence in history was not only central for themselves but for all mankind. The Jewish people believed from the beginning of this religion that God had revealed in a certain way the structure of communal and individual life to his people.

The history of Judaism has experienced significant political battles that were not easy to come back from, and this is a testament to the power of the Jewish people. Through the years of the Holocaust and the total devastation of life and loss of loved ones, this religion, and those that follow this religion and its' beliefs have remained strong in the love and dedication the Judasim. Very few religions have the abilitiy to remain strong through persecution and trials the way that the Jewish people have been able to do. This is not to say that this religion is better than others, or that the followers of Judasim have more faith than those of other religions, it is simply a fact that is in the history of Judasim and the Jewish people.

It is truly remarkable that in more than 4,000 years the history of the Jewish people has continued to remain a source of inspiration for their families and communities. The Jewish people have their religion have displayed a remarkable ability to be adaptable to change without loosing a core sense of their beliefs.
