On the Jewish Calendar, “days” do not begin and end at midnight but instead begin and end at Sunset. This is why you might see different dates for the same holiday on different web sites. Here at When-is.us, we always clearly inform our readers on exactly when each holiday begins and ends.
Judaism is a monotheistic religion representing approximately 0.03% of the world’s population. About 40% of Jews live in America, 40% live in Israel, and about 10% live in Europe (including Turkey and the Asian territories of Russia).
Judaism began four-thousand years ago. Traditions holds that at that time G-d made a covenant with Abraham that he would be the father of a great nation. That nation became that of the Jewish people.
The main Jewish texts are the Written Torah and the Talmud.
