Narrated by Ben Kingsley, each installment in the Religions of the World series offers an in-depth investigation into the practices and theology of a major world religion. Through interviews with experts, examination of artifacts, and dramatic reenactments, the major facets of these faiths are brought to light and explicated. In this particular video, the major tenets and practices of Judaism are examined. The importance of the two centers of Jewish life, the home and synagogue, are considered in some detail. Also examined are the importance of holy days and sacred texts.
