Judaism 101

A Jew believes there's just one God
No other God exists
Like all others who believe in one God
A Jew is a monotheist

Some Jews like to dance the jig
Others dance the hora
But all believe in the first five books
Of the Bible, which they call the Torah

God gave Moses all the laws
Those laws are called Mosaic
When Jews obey Mosaic law
Their behavior is Judaic

A practicing Jew will not eat pork
If you offer, he'll say "No, sir!"
He won't eat shellfish or mix milk with meat
For those things are not kosher

Rabbi Hillel said "What is hateful to you
Do not do unto others."
That is the whole message of the Jewish faith
Those who follow it live as brothers
