  • The different groupings within the community
  • The belief system and centrality of Torah –the Jewish law
  • The Jewish calendar
  • The family
  • Social norms
  • Sabbath
  • Kosher food
  • Structure of community

  • Challenges facing the community
  • Understanding the Orthodox Jewish Community also looks at strategies for building relationships with mainstream agencies
