Mormonism, or the Latter Day Saint movement, teaches that its adherents are either direct descendants of the House of Israel or adopted into it. Studies have shown that American Jews generally view Mormons more positively than any other religious group, despite often voting on opposite ends of the political spectrum. God in Judaism is strictly monotheistic, an absolute one, indivisible, incorporeal and incomparable being who is the ultimate cause of all existence. The Hebrew Bible presents Yahweh as the creator of the world and as the only power controlling history.

The Salt Lake Temple contains a “Holy of Holies. Solomon’s Temple held the Ark of the Covenant in a room of the temple referred to as the Holy of Holies. Latter-day Saints believe that the Jews will one day rebuild a temple in Jerusalem, and that the Jews will restore the practice of rituals of the Law of Moses within that temple. Judaism holds that literal male descendants of Aaron are Kohanim, or priests.
Jews who are particularly learned in Jewish law and practice. Although not required, it is typical for a congregation to have at least one rabbi. Training to become a rabbi includes extensive education in Jewish law and practice, and may also include education in Jewish history and philosophy. In general, a congregation will hire a rabbi after reviewing applications and interviewing several candidates—there is no central body that assigns a rabbi to a congregation. Orthodox Judaism accepts only male rabbis.
