Jewish rituals and religious observances are grounded in Jewish law which is an intricate framework of divine “mitzvot” (commandments) that are combined with rabbinic laws and traditions. This is not just about religious life, but daily life in general, from how to dress, what one should or should not eat, to how to help the poor. Observance of this shows gratitude to God, provides a sense of Jewish identity and helps bring a little sanctification into everyday life.
