Whom or what do Jews worship?
Dictionaries define "Judaism" as The monotheistic religion of the Jews, since the founding principle of Judaism was and is the belief in One God, creator of the universe. This was the teaching which was spread by Abraham, and has continued since then. From Judaism, belief in One God has spread through the Western world.

In ancient times, Jews offered animal sacrifices in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, in addition to their prayers. Since the year 70, sacrifices are no longer offered up. Jews …may pray in a synagogue somewhat differently if they are Orthodox vs. non-Orthodox. Jews who go to a synagogue pray in Hebrew (non-Orthodox Jews also use their native language for prayer). Answer: Jewish prayer-books have a structured order. Prayers are ancient, and often are sung or chanted. While praying, Jews either sit in chairs, or stand, depending on the prayer. There is also some bowing forward (in the Amidah and Aleinu). In between the prayers, Kaddish is said; and the Torah is read on many occasions. Jews attend synagogues. Prayer services are mostly in the Hebrew language, and many prayers are sung. There are also different types of services, some including the reading of the Torah.
In Hebrew, the formal place of worship is called Beth Knesseth: acombination of the Beth Ha-Knesset (House of Assembly), BethHa-Midrash (House of Study), and Beth Ha-Tefillah …(House ofPrayer). Answer: The most common term for a Jewish house of worship is a synagogue,but Non-Orthodox Jews in America also call it a temple. The wordShul (sometimes spelled Schul) is a Yiddish term that is used byany Jewish denomination. The Hebrew term is Bet-K'nesset or BetMidrash. It should also be noted that a Jewish home is known as amini-sanctuary and it is the central place of many religiousobservances. However, Jews can pray anywhere they want with theexception that Jews many not pray in a bathroom or lavatory.
Traditional Jews have 3 services every day of the week, and 4 on the Sabbath (Saturday). Non-traditional Jews usually go to the synagogue only on the sabbath and some holidays…. saturday

We Jews still worship and have always worshiped G-d. nothing else.
Jews pray to thank God for what He created and gave us and show our appreciation. We pray for the well being of others. Please see the related link for a wonderful article… explaining why we daven (pray).
Jews, like members of other faiths, can worship anywhere at all, but the Jewish house of worship - which usually also provides teaching - is the synagogue.
Whom you should worship and whom you should not worship depends on your religious affiliation. For example, if you are a Jew or a Muslim, you should worship God (or Allah) a…nd no one else. If you are a Christian, you should worship God and Jesus but no one else. If you are a Zoroastrian, you should worship Ahura Mazda and no one else. Some religions have several gods, all of whom you should normally worship. Your religious leaders or your scriptures would give you advice on which gods to worship. The Dao religion has its own gods, but fully accepts the worship of any other God or gods that you wish to worship. Ask God to guide you to the . He will.
Judaism is strictly monotheistic, meaning it has one God. Jewsworship the One God, who created the heaven and earth. Traditionholds that He gave the Torah to Moses on Mount Si…nai (Exodus 24:12)3300 years ago, and it instructs how to worship Him. The God ofJudaism is without form, not physical, and cannot be divided intoparts. The Creator has one true name which is represented by the lettersYHVH in English. The Hebrew letters are "yud, hei, vav, hei". Thesefour letters are referred to as the tetragrammaton and are acontraction of the Hebrew words for "was, is, and will be". Histrue name was only said in the Temple and with the Temple'sdestruction we lost the correct pronunciation. In the Tanach (Jewish Bible), there are 72 different 'names' usedfor The Creator. These aren't actual names though; they'redescriptions of Him that are contextual. In daily conversation,most Jews refer to God by the title 'HaShem' which literallytranslates to 'The Name' in reference to His true name. Answer 2 The Jews and Muslims worship the same God that the Christians do.They just don't worship Jesus. Answer 3 Jews worship God, the Creator. Many Jews do not accept thatChristians worship the same God, because of the trinity which is aform of polytheism from the Jewish perspective. The Creator has no form, body or limit. Jews do not worship peopleor any physical item.

In synagogues. Jewish prayer-books have a structured order. Prayers are ancient,and often are sung or chanted. Some prayers are said in unison(such as Shir Hakavod), and some …are not. Some prayers are saidmore than once per day (such as the Shema), some once a day (suchas Yotzer Ohr), and others are said only on Sabbath, festivals orcertain occasions. Some prayers are said aloud (such as Kaddish),some are sung (such as Lekha Dodi) and some are to be whispered(the Amidah). Most of the services are in Hebrew, but a couple ofprayers are in Aramaic (such as Brikh Shemei). While praying, Jews either sit in chairs, or stand, depending onthe prayer. There is also some bowing forward (in the Amidah andAleinu), but Jews today do not kneel except once a year on YomKippur (the Day of Atonement). In between the prayers, Kaddish is said; and the Torah is read onmany occasions (over two hundred times a year). While formal prayer services are held in the synagogue, many otherblessings (such as those over meals) are said in the home.
