Orthodox Judaism --- Just What You Need To Know


Judaism is a very complex form or Religion, and since it was designed by its God to be something completely different than all other forms of Religion and worship, then it is  very weird to an outsider. But once you get to know and understand Judaism, then you will see that each ritual they perform makes perfect sense. And at the same time, when it comes to Judaism and all other Religions, there are always different sects that share different beliefs and convictions on how to worship their God. And so it is with Judaism that you have the Ultra Orthodox Judaism sect, that believes in following the rules and regulations that God has laid out to the letter. And as for me, I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing right, or in other words whatever you get involved in, go all out and be real about it, whether that's working out, or starting your own business, or educating your kids or serving your God. And so I understand these Orthodox Jewish Brothers and Sisters, about being hardcore with their beliefs and wanting to get everything right, and keeping it that way for generations. So with that said, this is why today I am sharing with You a glimpse at some of the rituals of Strictly Orthodox Judaism, so you can get to know them a little bit before you start judging them or being prejudice toward them. Your spiritual guide, James Dazouloute


A FASCINATING GLIMPSE AT THE RITUALS OF STRICTLY ORTHODOX JEWS LIVING IN ISRAEL

Yaakov_Naumi_15
A strictly Orthodox rabbi dances the “mitzvah tantz” at the wedding of his grand-daughter in the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak. The “mitzvah tantz” is a dance ritual in which the Rebbe and the fathers and brothers of the groom dance around a rope with the bride. Each holds one side of a rope so as not to touch the bride, because according to the Jewish holy Torah, it is prohibited to touch a woman to whom you are not married.
Yaakov_Naumi_14
A Jewish woman walks a chicken before the Kaparot ritual, where the chicken will swung over one’s head. It is believed that the sins of the past year are then transferred into the chicken. In the strictly Orthodox neighborhood of Meah Shearim, the ritual is performed before the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. The chicken is later killed and given to charity.
Yaakov_Naumi_03
A strictly Orthodox Jewish man lays in an open grave after a body was taken out of it. This practice is said to lengthen one’s own life expectancy.
For The Lives of Orthodox Jews in Israel, photojournalist Yaakov Naumi sheds light on the rituals of the Haredi Jewish community in cities like Jerusalem and Bnei Brak, where daily life is conducted according to strict Orthodox adherence to Jewish law.
Naumi himself was raised in a Haredi home and taught at Haredi schools; he studied sacred texts at yeshiva. When he took a position photographing for Behardrey Heredim, a major international media outlet devoted to Haredim news, his view on the familiar traditions began to shift. Even though he had been intimately acquainted with most of the rituals he was sent to shoot, some were new to him and seemed entirely foreign. Working for a worldwide press, he began to observe the events as an outsider would, noticing from the inside the ways in which Orthodox practices might confound, mystify, and amaze mainstream audiences.
Naumi’s intention in photographing these events and rituals in an unfamiliar at at times mysterious way, he emphasizes, is not to make make his fellow Haredim seem strange or alien but to compel us to seek a deeper understanding of their chosen ways of life, which divide and isolate them from modern culture and society.
The people Naumi met and photographed, he admits, were often hesitant to permit him to join them with his camera, but ultimately it was his inherent understanding of their customs that opened doors. Sometimes, he was invited in without having asked first. At other times, some expressed unhappiness and anger with the way they are portrayed, but the photographer continues making these images in hopes that they will raise discussions and spark interest from members of the outside world, in people who have never encountered this kind of Orthodox Judaism. In the end, he says, his photographs are about sharing “my culture, their culture, our culture” and leaving each individual to draw his or her own conclusions.
Yaakov_Naumi_23
A strictly Orthodox Jew of the Lelov Chassidic dynasty whips another strictly orthodox man with a leather strap as a symbolic punishment for their sins as they perform the traditional Malkot ceremony in a synagogue in the town of Bet Shemeshm a few hours before the start of Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur, also known as the day of Atonement, is the most solemn of the Jewish holidays. The central themes are atonement and repentance. It is observed by a 25 hour fast and intensive prayer.
Yaakov_Naumi_04
Strictly Orthodox Jews gather for the traditional Jewish wedding of Chananya Yom Tov Lipa, the great-grandson of the Rabbi of the Wiznitz Hasidic followers, in the town of Bnei Brak.
Yaakov_Naumi_06
A strictly Orthodox bride and groom dance the night before they are to be wed.
Yaakov_Naumi_21
Strictly Orthodox Jewish men of the Hasidic dynasty perform the Tashlich ritual beside a fish pool. Tashlich, which translates to mean ‘to cast away’ in Hebrew, is a ceremony in which Jews visit body of water and symbolically ‘throw away’ their sins by throwing a piece of bread, or similar food, into the water prior to Yom Kippur.
Yaakov_Naumi_12
Strictly Orthodox Jewish of the Chassidic ‘Toldot Aharon’ dynasty men dance on a table as part of a “tisch” (yiddisch word for table) ceremony during the Jewish holiday of ‘Purim’, in the Meah Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem. The festival of Purim commemorates the rescue of Jews from genocide in ancient Persia.
Yaakov_Naumi_22
The traditional Jewish custom of ‘Pidyon haben’, the redemption of the first-born son, in the city of Bnei Brak. The ceremony is also known as buying the first born son for five silver coins, and takes place when the baby is 31 days old. The custom is for the father to redeem the baby, who must have been born by natural means, as he buys the child from a Kohen, a member of the high priests from the ancient temples in Jerusalem, for five silver Shekels.
Yaakov_Naumi_16
Strictly Orthodox Jewish women wearing full covering as a means of modesty walk through the neighborhood of Meah Shearim.
Yaakov_Naumi_07
The rebbe seen with the bride during the “Mitzvah Tantz” dancing ritual at a wedding.
Yaakov_Naumi_24
Tens of thousands of Strictly Orthodox Jews of the Belz Hasidic Dynasty take part in the wedding ceremony of Rabbi Shalom Rokach, the Grandson of the Belz Rabbi to Hana Batya Pener.
Yaakov_Naumi_05
Strictly Orthodox children of the chassidic Nadvorna dynasty attend a “chumash” party celebrating receiving the first book of the ‘Torah’, the Jewish written law.
Yaakov_Naumi_20
Strictly orthodox Jewish men and children set the Israeli flag on fire at a bonfire during celebrations of the Jewish holiday of “Lag Ba’Omer” in the ultra orthodox neighborhood of Meah Shearim in Jerusalem. “Lag Ba’Omer” commemorates the death of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, one of the most important sages in Jewish history 1800 years ago. The most well-known custom of Lag BaOmer is the lighting of bonfires throughout Israel and in Jewish communities worldwide.
Yaakov_Naumi_11
Strictly Orthodox Jewish men covered with prayer shawls hold the four plant species – palm leave stalk, citrus, myrtle and willow-branches, as they take part in the ‘Hoshana Rabbah’ prayer (on the last day of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot) at the Slabodka yeshiva, in Bnei Brak.
Yaakov_Naumi_08
A young boy peers through the stands where strictly Orthodox Jews gathered for the traditional Jewish wedding of Chananya Yom Tov Lipa, the great-grandson of the Rabbi of the Wiznitz Hasidic followers, in the town of Bnei Brak.
Yaakov_Naumi_10
Strictly Orthodox Jews follow an ancient Biblical command and harvest wheat with a hand sickle in a field near the central Israeli town of Modi’in. They will store the wheat for almost a year and then use it to grind flour to make unleavened bread for the week-long Jewish holiday of Passover.
Yaakov_Naumi_13
Strictly Orthodox Jews decorate a sheep with pearls, tinsel and flowers as part of a ceremony called the ‘Redemption of the first born donkey’ or in Hebrew ‘Pidyon Peter Chamor’ in Jerusalem. The tradition of the Redemption of the first born donkey is part of the 613 laws commemorated in the Jewish Bible.
Yaakov_Naumi_17
Thousands of strictly Orthodox Jews attend the funeral of Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv in the orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Meah Shearim, Jerusalem.
Yaakov_Naumi_01
Strictly Orthodox Jews seen dancing at a massive protest attended by hundred of thousands in Jerusalem, against a proposed plan formed by the Israeli parliament to introduce compulsory military service to the Haredi community.
