Judaic Art – The Judaic Culture
Judaic or Judaism is a native religion of the Jewish population, but has much influence on the people who follow other religions as well. It is considered to be a people’s religion because it adheres to the teachings of the Bible as related in the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud, as well as to ancient Judaic laws. It has evolved over time and has seen the incorporation of beliefs from many other religions, such as Christian, Muslim, and Eastern Orthodox. Many of its fundamental beliefs are the same as the followers of other religions have.
Judaic Judaism is an Abrahamic, polytheistic, and cultural religion comprising the communal, cultural, legal, and theological tradition and culture of the Jewish population, which also sometimes became known as Israelites in the English-speaking world. The early Jewish leaders, the elders of the community, called the Sephardis, were known for their fierce resistance to outside influences, particularly those of Rome and Greece. The book of Numbers tells of the story of the Flood of the Mediterranean Sea, when the Israelites experienced a great calamity as a result of their sins. Though they were saved through the help of G-d, they were driven out into the desert by the neighboring peoples, and their homeland was changed forever.
The essence of Judaic ethics and religious beliefs are derived from the teachings of the Torah and the nature of G-d. As a people, the jews understood that all human life is sacred, so the concept of tzedek (good life) was central to their lives and thought. They brought with them from their forefathers the traditions of having a telegram sent to G-d on special occasions like the Passover holiday, so that he may bring mercy to the world through his presence. This is one reason why Judaic people have such a strong sense of family honor, as the sending of a telegram with the blessing of G-d can make a deep difference to a family, especially during this time of year when the holiday season is most frantic.
