For over four thousand years Jewish people have been united by culture, race, ethnicity and religion. The Jewish people kept a careful record of their history and developed extensive holidays and rituals — all of which have kept their community and identity strong. These traditions and rituals span each lifetime from birth to death creating unity to one another as well as all the generations who came before; uttering the same words, tasting the same bread, and lighting the same candles. Even when the Jewish people were not gathered on the same piece of land they have created community through their shared rituals and traditions.
