Jewish Culture I picked to do a paper on the Jewish culture because most of my mothers family practice the Jewish way of life I have always been curious of exactly what the Jewish culture consisted of and this paper gave me a reason to find out The Jewish people dress much like we do wearing suits or dresses only at formal occasions However strict orthodox Jews dress much more conservatively with the men wearing their embroidered yarmulke the little cap that covers their head In the even more strict ultra-orthodox Jews men wear black pants and jackets over a white button up shirt with black hats The women cannot wear pants and must cover their heads with a scarf Greeting each other id informal for the Jews Most say shalom meaning peace or sometimes Ma Nishma whats up or Ma Inyanim whats happening is followed by that Handshakes are very common and the extra amount of touching for a greeting depends on what part of Israel you are from Everyone is addressed be first name once introduced Even students address their teachers by their first names Respect for elders is also very important to the Jews Jews love to visit their friends and relatives much like we do Invitations for dinner are very common on Friday evenings or Saturday afternoons Many times these guests bring gifts like flowers or chocolates along for their hosts The Jewish family is very close and they also pay a great deal of attention to the children in the family The parents generally feel a great responsibility for how their children do in the future When children eventually get married they do not live far from their parents or where they grew up and they also expect that eventually they will take care of their parents once they are old and unable to care for themselves Traditionally the father is the head of the house but women still
