Judaism began more than 4,000 years ago in the Middle East. We believe in one God who created everything. The three fathers of Judaism are Abraham, his son, Isaac, and his grandson, Jacob. Many years after Abraham lived, the prophet Moses received the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai.
The two most important places for a Jew are the home and the synagogue. We celebrate many festivals at home, especially the Sabbath, and talk about the scriptures. The Mezuzah is a small box fixed to the doorpost of our home. Inside it is a tiny scroll with words of a special prayer and passages from the Torah. Fixing these words to our doorpost is a way to honor and remember God cares for us. We touch and kiss the Mezuzah as a mark of respect and love.
What you yourself hate, do to no man.
