Traditional Jews have 3 services every day of the week, and 4 onthe Sabbath (Saturday). Non-traditional Jews usually go to thesynagogue only on the sabbath and some holidays.
We Jews still worship and have always worshiped G-d. nothing else.
No, the Torah forbids that (Exodus ch. 20, Deuteronomy ch. 5).
Forbidden. Jews are not allowed to worship anyone but G-d. And we are forbidden to ever try and represent G-d in any image. Nor are we allowed to worship any other human; this… would be idolatry..
\nThe Torah (also known as the Five Books of Moses) is the first five books of the Bible. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. \n. \nMany religions use the To…rah to worship, most people just refer to it as part of the First (or old) Testament of the Bible.

Both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible warn againstworshipping idols or images. Worship is to be for God and himalong.
Jews can worship almost anywhere. For group prayer, a minimum of ten men (amongst the Orthodox) or ten men and/or women (amongst almost all other groups) is required.
Historically, when the Temple stood, prayer was accompanied by musical instruments. In modern Judaism, the tradition was to not play any instruments during worship because of …the destruction of the Temple. However, some Reform and Conservative groups do now play musical instruments during worship.
A number of instruments including a 12-stringed harp known as a nevel and a small drum called a tof are thought to have been used during worship within the Temple in Jerusalem… in ancient times. Today, there is much variation between different synagogues, even those serving Jews of the same denomination. For example, one synagogue, though describing itself as Reform, might serve a traditionally-minded congregation and as such employ little or no music during services. However, another - which also describes itself as Reform - may regularly accompany services with organ music or other instruments. Likewise, one Orthodox synangogue (especially one serving Charedi Jews) might strictly forbid music whereas another - such as one in an area with many Chasidic Jews - may use music and musical instruments as an expression of the joyful spirituality that Chasids believe to be an important part of worship. Over the years, I have heard of a number of different musicians employing a number of different instruments being invited to play in synagogues. One example would be the American Jewish singer-songwriter Regina Spektor, who found and abandoned piano in her synagogue after arriving in the USA from Russia. At the other end of the scale, I have heard of a heavy metal band, composed of teenage Jewish boys, playing in a Progressive/Liberal synagogue.
The use of images is forbidden in Jewish worship. According to ourlaws, it distracts from the true nature of worshiping God. Jewsbelieve that God is beyond any possibility of …being represented inpictures or icons and see all such creations to be nothing morethan idols. In Judaism, God is non-physical, indivisible and incomparable.
Worship of idols or images (icons) is forbidden in Islam. Muslims pray only to Allah.
It depends on how the question is read. If the question is read to say "Did synagogue worship only begin to exist anywhere in the world when Jews came to the US?", then the a…nswer is "No". We actually have extant synagogues that are older than 450 years old, which makes them older than all European settlement in the Americas. We also documented evidence that Jews worshiped in synagogues for two millenia, if not more. If the question is read to say "Did synagogue worship only begin toexist in the US when Jews came to the US?", then the answeris "Yes". Only Jews build synagogues and they are primary worshipers there. Synagogues have existed since the First Temple era and before (Talmud, Megilla 26b), though not in the U.S.
In Prophet Muhammad
we follow the laws and precepts contained in it in our religion.
Because God, in choosing to become incarnate as a human being, made Himself an "image" of God, we call Him Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ. However, Catholics do not use image…s per se in the sacraments, although there are often images in statues, windows, etc. These are not part of the worship services themselves. . Images, Veneration of . Honor paid to representations of Christ and the saints. Their purpose is to adorn, instruct, and excite to piety those who behold, wear, or carry images on their persons. According to the Council of Trent, images of Christ, of the Mother of God, and other canonized saints are to be kept in churches and due honor paid to them not because there is any divinity or power inherent in them as images, but because the honor shown to them is referred to the prototypes they represent. Through the worship and reverence so shown, the faithful really worship Christ and honor the saints whose likenesses they display. In other words, the veneration is relative, always being referred back to the original, never absolute as though the material object is being venerated in and for itself. .
