Orthodox Jews: who are they?

Jews in Israel are different. Some of them live a normal life, dress to their taste, earn money and are eager to give their children a good education. Other, orthodox Jews, live according to the laws of the Halacha, which finally took shape at the beginning of the New Age. Halakha is a set of rules regulating all areas of life: birth and marriage, work and family, behavior and worldview. Jewish Orthodox are noticeable from afar. They are dressed only in black and white (even underwear can only be of such colors), their head is crowned with a hat, and the hair is decorated with paces. "Workers" and Orthodox Jews do not really like each other. This is reflected even in proverbs ("When Tel-Aviv walks, and Jerusalem prays, Haifa works"). This dislike is understandable. Ordinary people are unhappy with the fact that they have to feed and provide the whole country, and the Orthodox in Israel believe that the life of all others is contrary to religious laws. Orthodoxy can be found not only in Israel, but in many countries they are perceived as something extravagant or exotic.

Rules of life

Orthodox Jews can not work on Saturday. And it is difficult to go to the store, and call the elevator, and cooking, and ... In short, on Saturday, Jews can only drink, eat, communicate. Recently, they have begun picketing or even smashing the institutions that work on this day of the week. So they call for the fulfillment of the laws of Judaism. Orthodoxy has its own entertainment. When they gather in groups, they beat taxi drivers, sellers, other working Jews on Saturdays. Apparently, such aggressive activity is not considered work. Life among the devotees of Halacha is very difficult. Orthodox Jews must adhere to the 613 rules of the "Pentateuch", and this is only on a normal, non-holiday day. Therefore, they have no time for work. Each step is written in accordance with the provisions of the Torah. Orthodox Jews should not only eat kosher food, but also dress (for example, do not combine wool and linen). Their clothes are sewed only by special tailors. They must observe all the rules of the Shabbat, circumcise, pray three times a day, serve God in joy, etc.

In fact, it turns out that Orthodox Jewsare indifferent to everything except their own faith. The areas where they live are not clean, their children (usually not less than five) are not well-groomed, ill-mannered. Orthodox only learn and pray, and for everything else - "The Will of God." Without paying taxes (as a non-working part of the population) they nevertheless do not forget to demand social assistance from the state.

Orthodox are different

Orthodox Jews are not a single mass. Adherents of the Hasidic Current are considered an ultra-orthodox direction. It is they who wear black short trousers tucked into socks (not to touch the dirt of the earth), gird themselves with a black wide belt and cover their head with a hat made of felt of the same color. Women chasidki often shave their heads, and then wear wigs. Hasidism is a direction inclined to mysticism and exaltation. There are still orthodoxes - neturei karta, opposing Zionism in general, and the existence of Israel in particular. There are more orthodox modernists who are closer to real life, but none of these Hasidic currents recognize.
