My name is Abraham and I am Jewish. I believe in one God who created and rules the world. He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. I and all other Jewish people believe people are born to be equal and Judaism is an ethical religion.
In class, I learned that Judaism originated with the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at Mount Sinai at the Great Revelation in 1400 BCE. I live in Little Rock, AR. Sadly; Jewish people only make up about 1% of the world population. I believe Judaism is practiced in the United States, Italy, and Jerusalem. I worship three times a day and our sacred text is the Torah. The Torah is read from each Sabbath. Our sacred symbol is the Star of David, also known as the 6 sided star.
