I need some help. I am researching different religions. The Islamic board had a thread explaining exactly what Islam was about. Is there any way that I could get someone to explain Judaism to me? I went to a few websites, I have NO idea where to start, or what anything even IS . So, your help would be GREATLY appreciated!
If you want some basis to go by, this is what the Islamic board posted.
Wel, Judaism is not only a religion. Jews are a race of people. Any person whose born from a Jewish mother is a Jew, regardless of what practices he/she chooses to follow. Sure we have conversions, but they're not as easy. The one word that would describe judaism is G-d. All Jewish law is based on the belief in one supreme, benevolent, allmighty G-d. The Torah (our sacred book) is our instructions, given to us by G-d on how to lead a moral, fulfilling and meaningful life.
Anyway, to understand the basics of Judaism, I suggest you go to www.askmoses.com. You can ask questions there, talk to a Jewish scholar and get very 101 information. For more advanced issues try www.aish.com and www.torah.org, which has a section on the basics that you may find useful.
