The founder of Judaism is Abraham. God told Abraham to leave his home and family and travel to what is now Israel. If he did, God promised this land to Abraham's descendants. After many, many centuries, the descendents of Israel became slaves in Egypt. They suffered greatly. Then God called Moses to lead the people of Israel out of Eygpt. God offered a covenent and if they believed in him they would be the chosen people. After 40 years of wondering through the desert, Moses led his people to the promised land.


God's name in Hebrew is YHWH, which means "I am".
