In the Torah, there are many ways both men and women become tamei; becoming tahor (often translated in English as “clean”), obviates most restrictions. There is no concept of original sin, nor vicarious atonement.

A relation to a patron god was defined by revelations starting with Abraham (who never refers to the God of his father) and continuing with a succession of "founders" of his worship.

Jewish developments during the 1st century CE: About 24 religious sects had formed by the 1st century CE of which the largest were the Basusim, Essenes, Pharisees, Sadducees and Zealots. Her precedence over creation is found, for example, in Proverbs 3:19, Psalm 104:24. And they would be alert to the fact that it is the “Synagogue of Satan” (Revelation 2 and 3) that is Satan’s primary tool today for destruction and enslavement of souls.

Jewish righteousness, "Ẓedaḳab," which is the power of helpful love readjusting social inadequacies, was destined to go forth from the Synagogue in order to lift the burden of wo from suffering humanity and to organize everywhere works ofcharity. And of course, there’s the humdrum of “what I do all day”—working out at 24 Hour Fitness, typing emails at Starbucks, going to Shabbat dinner, and “egg ‘n cheesin” at Denny’s.

Most interestingly, the Jews who did that—or shot the POWs, for that matter—lead absolutely normal lives. Liberal Jews are not so careful about kosher, although some of them may keep some rules. A highlight is the Seder meal held in each family's home at the beginning of the festival, when the story of their deliverance is recounted as narrated in the Haggadah (the Telling, the Story). An Ishtar-woman vowed to a god, A sacred prostitute whose favors are unlimited, Will not lift you out of your trouble: In your quarrel she will slander you.
