One of the remarkable things about Judaism is that Judaism doesn’t merely teach us to be good people and to believe in God; Judaism includes a complete educational system to constantly remind us of God and morality.
A Jew says brief prayers before and after eating and after using the bathroom.
A Jew stops using electricity and machines for one day a week to remind him that God created the universe in six days and rested on the seventh.
A Jew observes many holidays each year to remind himself of all of God’s miracles throughout history.
The matzo and the sukkah remind us of the Exodus.
The mezuzah on every doorway reminds us of God.
The tzitzis worn by a Jewish man remind him of all the commandments.
A Jewish man puts on tefillin each day to remind himself of God.
A Jewish man attends services in a synagogue three times each day.
A Jewish man studies the Talmud each day.
This is a truly unique and ingenious program which allows the Jew to live in this material world while at the same time remembering all his religious principles.
