In which John Green teaches you the history of Islam, including the revelation of the Qu'ran to Muhammad, the five pillars of Islam, how the Islamic empire got its start, the Rightly Guided Caliphs, and more. Learn about hadiths, Abu Bakr, and whether the Umma has anything to do with Uma Thurman (spoiler alert: it doesn't). Also, learn a little about the split between Sunni and Shia Muslims, and how to tell if this year's Ramadan is going to be difficult for your Muslim friends. Let's try to keep the flame wars out of this reasoned discussion.

Natasha welcomes TrueTube to the New London Synagogue for a tour of all its main features. Taking us from the door to the Ark to the women's gallery, she talks about her beliefs and what happens during a service at the synagogue.

Going to synagogue for the first time can sometimes be a daunting experience. The architecture may be unfamiliar, the ritual items foreign and words are used in languages other than English.
Knowing what to expect, in advance of your first visit, will help you feel more comfortable in this space.
To that end, we have created a new video, What To Expect At A Synagogue, that takes us inside the building and into the sanctuary. Guided by Rabbi Emma Kippley-Ogman of Kehillath Israel, a Conservative synagogue in Brookline, Massachusetts, we are introduced to the items we might find in the lobby, or just outside the sanctuary; we are taken into the sanctuary for an overview of the features in the space; and we are even given an up close look at items used during services, such as prayer books and a Torah scroll. As we move through, words and concepts are translated into English and explained.
Shalom and welcome to Parsha in 60 Seconds Today's portion is BONUS ROUND!
Rosh Hashanah, also known as the Jewish New Year, is the first of the Jewish High Holy Days that were listed in Leviticus. You laugh, you cry, and you're judged by God. Sounds fun right? It starts with a blast from the shofar which calls us to humble ourselves and recognize our need for God's grace. Next day gather at a nearby stream or river to symbolically cast away sin, this is called Tashlich (cast off). It is customary to greet one another by saying, "La shanah tova tikatevu," which means, "May your name be inscribed for a good year." The "inscribing" refers to the Book of Life, which according to Jewish tradition, closes ten days later. Jewish tradition includes rounded challah to represent the crown of God and the dipping of apples in honey to wish for a sweet and fruitful year. Rabbis and Cantors wear white to represent purity. And that is Rosh Hashanah in 60 seconds
