Collapse Subdiscussion Kathleen Hunt Kathleen Hunt Sep 30, 2019Sep 30 at 7:12pm Manage Discussion Entry Hi All, I chose Orthodox and Conservative Judaism to define and discuss. Orthodox Judaism is considered the traditional Judaism. It began after the Reform began.The two differed in their support for the state of Israel, and the need for secular education. Conservative Judaism traces its origins to Germany. The conservatist Jew accept change, but use study and discussion to guide change carefully. Orthodox Judaism are committed to retaining traditional practice beliefs. They were nearly destroyed by the Nazis. Orthodox Jews believe that the Torah was given divinely to the jewish people at Mt. Sinai. The orthodox Jews are made up of several different groups. They continue traditional jewish beliefs nd ways of life. They strictly follow all the traditional jewish laws, and pray three times a day. They seek to presserve classical or traditional judaism. Orthodox Jews believe the Torah is truth. A true jew believes in revalation, and the devine origin of the written and oral Torah. They believe that god is spirit rather than human form. He is a personal god, eternal and compassionate. They believe that man is morally neutral with good and evil inclinations. He can overcome his evil and be perfected by his own efforts in observance of the law. Orthodox do not believe in original sin, one commits sin by breaking the commandments of the law. They believe repentance, prayer and obedience to the law are necessary for salvation.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
