"The peaceful life offers the greatest opportunity for happiness and prosperity."
Judaism is based on the covenant or mutual promise between God and the Jewish people. The covenant began with Abraham and was completed when God gave the Torah or Law to the Jewish people through Moses at Mt. Sinai in around 1300 BCE. The Torah, or first five books of the Hebrew scriptures in the Bible, contains commandments for achieving holiness and righteousness in all aspects of life.
Jewish legend describes the Star of David as an insignia of the ancient Jewish King David; the symbol has decorated synagogues for centuries and now represents Judaism worldwide.
