Jews And Judaism

This presentation is meaningful to me, as it discusses the beliefs that I was raised on. Many people know little about Judaism or what it means to be Jewish and hopefully this will help to teach them about the history of my religion.

This is mostly just a breakdown of the holidays that are celebrated (not all), though it does mention charities and graphs, etc.
