In the Exodus, Moses brought the Israelites out of the Egyptian slavery under the guidance of God, after God brought plagues upon the Egyptians (Exodus ch.1-12). After the Israelites left, Egypt was in turmoil for decades. Though Israel was later harassed (Judges ch.3,6 and 10) by its smaller neighbors (Ammon, Moab, Midian), not a peep was heard from Egypt for four hundred years.

Egypt's turmoil is also borne out by the Ipuwer papyrus, which mentions a number of the Plagues ("Pestilence is throughout the land....the river is blood, death is not scarce...there is no food...neither fruit nor herbs can be found...barley has perished...all is ruin...the statues are burned") (Professor John van Seters, Journal of Egyptian Archaeology no. 50). The plagues were also described by ancient historians, including Herodotus and Diodorus. The Exodus is mentioned by Strabo, Berosus, Artapanus, Numenius, Justin, and Tacitus.

Jews worship in synagogues.Public prayer services are part of halakha (Jewish law) and tradition (Talmud, Berakhot 26a).Prayer is an important form of communicating with God, and maintaining a relationship with Him; and it is also good for the health of the soul, to which Torah, prayer and religious observances are a form of nourishment.


The Exodus is something for which we Jews remain eternally grateful to God. It is one of the reasons given for our observance of God's commands. 1) It was the fulfillment of one of God's promises to Abraham (see Genesis ch.15). 2) It demonstrated God's involvement in this world and in the workings of history. 3) It showed that God's covenant with the Forefathers was still in effect. 4) It was the main preparation for the Giving of the Torah at Sinai several weeks later. 5) It made the Israelites into a distinct nation. 6) In the Exodus, God did miracles for which we remain grateful to this day.

A humanist is one who virtually worships humanity and wishes humanity to thrive. A traditionalist is one who embraces tradition regardless of whether it has a positive effect on humans or not. Therefore, a humanist can easily become a critic of tradition. http:/www.politicallyincorrectts.com


Prayer services are part of halakha (Jewish law) and tradition (Talmud, Berakhot 26a); and the Torah records several prayers of our forefathers. Prayer is an important form of communicating with God; maintaining a relationship with Him; and it is also good for the health of the soul, to which Torah, prayer and religious observance are a form of nourishment. Judaism sees it as centrally important to thank God, to recognize that He is the source of prosperity, and to be close to Him. It therefore follows that the synagogue, which is the place of public worship, would be important. According to our tradition, we can pray privately when necessary, but communal prayer has a much stronger effect (Talmud, Berakhot 7b-8a). It also strengthens the spiritual level and the bonds within the community.

The Hebrew word Torah is frequently translated as Law. When someone says "the Torah", they are typically referring to the 5 books of Moses, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The Jewish tradition holds that this text was given to (or dictated to) Moses on Mount Sinai by God (perhaps not the final verses of Deuteronomy). Jewish tradition also holds that God also told Moses how to interpret the text, and that Moses passed on this "oral Torah" to Joshua who passed it on, down through the generations to the present. So, the word Torah has a wider meaning than just the revealed text. The word is also used to refer to the interpretive traditions -- in effect, the culture -- that surrounds that text. So, Jews say that the Talmud is a written record of this oral Torah, but it does not stop there. In its broadest sense, Torah is everything that humanity has learned that is true and good. Of course, we might disagree about that, but at its best, the argument about what is true and good can itself be a continuation of or contribution to Torah.

We descended from them. Judaism has had an incredible effect on European history. Even though there have been a relatively small number of Jews, most of Europe was Christian, a religion based in part on Jewish tradition and belief. As a result, the Jewish Holy Book, the Bible became a central part of European history and identity along with the foundation of many laws. Judaism also represented a fundamental shift from the Hellenistic Worldview in which a person was valued by what he could do (i.e. fight as a warrior, earn lots of money, etc.) to who he could be (i.e. loving, caring, empathetic, etc.). The idea that a person should attempt to love his neighbor instead of out-compete him is of Jewish origin. This, of course, has been subsumed by Christianity.
