Jesus is the new covenant. The Jews of today should be following their messiah, not those old laws.
so what laws of the bible do we follow?

The book of Romans is pretty helpful for sorting this out. The book of Peter also has some good fundamentals.

Mostly it's not about following laws particularly.

Romans as was mentioned is the key. The law exist to show a sinner they need a savior. We we are born again we are taken out from being under the law and then placed under grace. This does not let want live a life free to sin. It just means we do not have worry every time we sin that God's love stops. We because of grace have a way to be cleansed and that is repentance (1 John 1:9). Now one who lives a life of blatant and willful sin is NOT a born again believer (1 John chapter 2). So rules and laws are not important as knowing Jesus as Savior. When you do you will not want to willfully sin.
