for a while now I’ve been fascinated and moved by Jewish faith. I’ve known people who were born into Judaism and also people who have converted to Judaism, and everything I’ve learned from them has been about how comforting and beautiful Jewish faith is—which was something that I never really experienced with religion myself so I was amazed that a religion could be that for so many people whose religious history has been wrought with so much suffering. I think with being the oldest Abrahamic religion, and how the others follow similar narratives or add onto their scripture, it shows just how important Judaism is to the development of monotheistic religions. There were moments throughout its history where it was in danger of dying out, but still Jewish people persevered and continued in their faith stronger than before. It seems that throughout history, when Jewish people were being persecuted, they connected that to stories from their scriptures where Israelites faced similar situations. They resonated a lot with what happened in the past, and I think that helped them to survive what was happening in the present. As stated in the video, it was especially important that Jewish people were adaptable to the new situations in which they were in, along with the fact that they kept a community with each other to survive. One such moment that stuck out to me was seeing how Jewish people forced to live in the Warsaw ghetto kept Jewish memory and tradition alive by continuing to teach Hebrew and Jewish scripture, by keeping with their daily prayers, and by having a strong sense of Jewish community. I always wondered, how can one continue to follow a religion that was the reason for their suffering? But I can understand now that it was because they had a deep belief in Jewish faith and the covenant, and that was what was important. It’s also understandable why Jewish people would want to return to Israel after, what I assume would be, feeling so betrayed by humanity for what they went through during the Holocaust. I’m sure returning to there would feel as if they were in a place meant for them where they were safe. I personally have issues with the actions taken against Palestinians by Israeli forces, which I believe do not follow what Jewish ethic stands for, but that is a separate issue.

I agree with your argument that Judaism is one of the religious denominations that are the
most interesting when it comes to the world of religion. I would further support this idea by
adding that the core ethical statement of Judaism is based on the Torah. Herein, the Torah is t...
