Judaism is the world’s oldest monotheistic religion, dating back nearly 4,000 years. Followers of Judaism believe in one God who revealed himself through ancient prophets
Most Jews (with the exception of Messianic Jews and a few other groups) believe that their Messiah hasn’t come—but will one day.
The Jewish sacred text is called the Tanakh or the “Hebrew Bible”. It includes the same books as the Old Testament in the Christian Bible
Today, there are about 14 million Jews worldwide. Most of them live in the United States and Israel. Traditionally, a person is considered Jewish if his or her mother is Jewish.
The Torah—the first five books of the Tanakh—outlines laws for Jews to follow. It’s sometimes also referred to as the Pentateuch.
Jewish people worship in Holy Places known as Synagogues, and their spiritual leaders are called RABBIS. The six-pointed Star of David is the symbol of Judaism.
Orthodox Jews are typically known for their strict observance of traditional Jewish Law and Rituals e.g. Shabbat shouldn’t involve working, driving or handling money.
