Overview

Maimonides, in his commentary on the Mishnah, compiles what he
refers to as the Shloshah-Asar Ikkarim, the Thirteen Articles of
Faith, compiled from Judaism's 613 commandments found in the
Torah.

The Thirteen Articles of Jewish faith are as follows:

1. Belief in the existence of the Creator, be He Blessed, who is
perfect in every manner of existence and is the Primary Cause
of all that exists.

2. The belief in G-d's absolute and unparalleled unity.

3. The belief in G-d's noncorporeality, nor that He will be
affected by any physical occurrences, such as movement, or
rest, or dwelling.

4. The belief in G-d's eternity.

5. The imperative to worship Him exclusively and no foreign false
gods.

6. The belief that G-d communicates with man through prophecy.

7. The belief that the prophecy of Moses our teacher has
priority.

8. The belief in the divine origin of the Torah.

9. The belief in the immutability of the Torah.

10. The belief in divine omniscience and providence.

11. The belief in divine reward and retribution.

12. The belief in the arrival of the Messiah and the messianic
era.

13. The belief in the resurrection of the dead.


It is the custom of many congregations to recite the Thirteen
Articles, in a slightly more poetic form, beginning with the
words Ani Maamin - "I believe" -- every day after the morning
prayers in the synagogue.
