What are the 3 essential practices of the early Church that distinguish them from those practicing Judaism?
Judaism is based on a strict monotheism, and a belief in one single, indivisible, non-compound God. The Shema Yisrael, one of the most important Jewish prayers, encapsulates the monotheistic nature of Judaism: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God; the Lord is one.
For Jews, worship can take place either in the synagogue or at home. It is often more important to practise faith at home. For example, this is the case for the practices related to Shabbat.
One of the key mitzvah is worship, which is a duty as part of the covenant with God. Worship is also important to Jews because it brings the community together.
Worship in the synagogue includes daily services, rites of passage and festivals. Worship at home includes prayers, Shabbat meals and study.
Worshipping in the synagogue
Orthodox synagogues hold three daily services in Hebrew. The person leading the congregation faces the aron hakodesh. Men and women sit separately, and men cover their heads with a skull cap or kippah. Married women wear a scarf over their head, which shows respect for God. Orthodox Jews often sway, which helps them to concentrate on the words being said. (PA BRAINLIEST)
