Jewish traditions

Ashonti Johnson


A Jew is a member of the people and cultural community whose traditional religion is Judaism and who trace origins through the ancient.

The first tradition I am going to talk about is hanukkah. On Hanukkah people celebrate for eight days and nights. They also use a special candle called a menorah. The types of food they eat is potato pancakes, zucchini, mushrooms and wild rice. They do not wear any special clothing unless they want to wear a kipah (head cap) for religious reasons. This celebration is a time for remembering about the time the Jews were slaves and were set free.

The next Jewish custom I am going to inform you about is passover. On passover someone tells the story about the exodus from Egypt. Types of foods they eat on this day are matzah, fruits, vegetables, and zeroah. They wear bigdei shaboos which is also a white button down robe. This custom is also a time for remembering.

The third custom I am going to inform you about is Rosh Hashanah which is the Jewish new year. Men wear modest clothes. The men wear suits black, blue or grey. Foods they eat are honey, carrots, dates and apples. This is once again the jewish new year. there year is different from ours.

The fourth custom i will tell you about is Yom Kippur. This is a day when the Jews fast. They wear white. Sometimes they do not eat because they are giving up something. They take the time to prey and study more about there lord.

The last tradition i am going to tell you about is wailing wall. this is a sacred place wear people go to prey. The men wear hats and sometimes the women wear there regular clothes. They do not eat there they just prey.
