The religion of the Jewish people is properly called “Rabbinic Judaism.” Although linked to the Bible, it differs from the Bible significantly. This is due to the addition of many traditions over the centuries. For the next few months, I will be sharing with you some of the Judaica your Jewish friend would own for the practice of this religion. Many Jewish people who do not follow Rabbinic Judaism will also have these items around their house for the purpose of decoration or Jewish identification. Knowledge of these items could provide a valuable conversation starter for you and open the door to a Gospel witness.
