  • Why  do  some  say  Judaism  is  neither  a  race  nor  a  culture?  Ø  Race  must  have  gene5c  similari5es.  Jews   can  convert  and  thus  not  be  gene5cally   related.    Ø  Not  a  culture  because  there  are  many   cultures  represented  in  Judaism.

  • What  are  some  points  that  orthodox   and  reconstruc5onist  Jews  might   disagree  about?  Orthodox   Reconstruc5onist   • God  exists   • God  does  not   • Jewish  people   exist   chosen  by  God   • Judaism  is   • Law  is  s5ll   mainly  a  culture   authorita5ve   • No  authority  to   scripture  
  • Most  agnos5c  Jews  consider  themselves  what  type  of  Jew  and  why?  Ø  Reformed  because  this  type  of  Judaism  is   the  most  liberal  and  generally  allows  the   widest  range  of  acceptable  beliefs  among   Judaism    
  • How  do  Jews  feel  toward  Chris5ans  and  Muslims?  Ø  Jews  believe  Chris5ans  and  Muslims  worship   the  same  God  as  they  do  Ø  They  believe  Chris5ans  and  Muslims  can  be   righteous  if  they  follow  the  law  that  has  been   revealed  to  them  (Chris5ans  and  Muslims)  Ø  S5ll  the  Jews  believe  they  have  been  chosen   by  God  in  a  way  that  the  Chris5ans  and   Muslims  have  not  been

  • What  is  a  rabbi  and  what  is  a  cantor?   •  Not  a  priest   Rabbi   •  A  teacher   •  Leads  prayer   Cantor   •  Ordained   •  Chants  Torah  
  • Why  do  Reform  Jews  use  the  word  temple  instead  of  synagogue?  Ø  Reformed  Jews  do  not  believe  the  temple  in   Jerusalem  will  be  rebuilt;  therefore,  they  do   not  reserve  the  word  temple  for  a  building   that  is  s5ll  to  come.  Ø  They  think  that  the  synagogue  has  replaced   by  the  temple.    
  • List  five  roles  the  synagogue  can  play  Ø  A  center  of  the  Jewish  religious  community  Ø  A  place  of  prayer  Ø  A  place  of  study    Ø  A  place  of  educa5on  Ø  A  place  of  social  work  Ø  A  place  of    charitable  work  
  • Where  are  the  Torah  scrolls  kept?   The  scrolls  are  kept  in  a  cabinet  in  the   synagogue  called  an  "ark,"  as  in  Ark  of  the   Covenant,  not  as  in  Noahs  Ark  
  • Explain  two  ideas  about  the  temple  Ø  It  is  a  physical  place  that  will  be  rebuilt  in   the  age  to  come  aSer  the  messiah  comes.   At  that  5me,  there  will  be  thanks  sacrifices   again  at  the  temple.  Ø  The  temple  is  no  longer  a  physical  place.  It   will  not  be  rebuilt  in  Jerusalem.  The   synagogue  has  now  taken  its  place.    
  • This  concludes  the  ques5ons  that  I  want  you  to  be  familiar  with  for  a  test.
