What does it mean to be Jewish?

During this topic of RE we looked at the various aspects of Judaism and how the teachings of the Torah are the same to many of the stories of the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.  We have explored what it means to be Jewish; identifying some religious artefacts to assist our learning and gain a better understanding of the culture.  We looked at the story of Moses and how this shaped much of Jewish belief as well as envisioning having to pursue the torment of the horrible plagues sent by God to the people of Egypt (not very nice!).  We also covered Sukkot, Shabbat,  Havdalah, what is meant by Kosher,  Passover and Hannukah.
