The Star of David is a widely recognized symbol of the Jewish religion.
Judaism is one of the oldest of the world's religions, a description for a race of people and a way of life whose believers can be found all over the world. Jews follow the beliefs of Jewish Law, found in the Torah (the first five books of the Hebrew Bible) and the Talmud. The Law governs areas such as diet, worship, marital relations, etc.
The religion's leaders, referred to as rabbis, are considered to be the most prominent figures in any Jewish community. They are experts in the Law, lead worship in the Synagogue (the place of Jewish worship), give guidance in Jewish practice and often act as a mediator in their community.
