What is Judaism?

The Jewish place of worship is dubbed the "synagogue"

What?Judaism is a monotheistic religion, (which means they only have one true god), and believe in theHebrew Bible. The followers are dubbed "Jews".

Why?Abraham saved his followers, dubbing them his "people" and lead them to the holy land. These people were Jewish, and we now look up to Abraham as the roots of Judaism.

For the Lord, your God, is the One Who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.-Deutronomy

Who?The followers of Judaism are generally proud of their religion, and have a belief in things such as, G-d exists, G-d is one and unique, G-d is incorporeal, G-d is eternal, Prayer is to be directed to G-d alone and to no other, The Written Torah (first 5 books of the Bible) and Oral Torah (teachings now contained in the Talmud and other writings) were given to Moses, There will be no other Torah, G-d knows the thoughts and deeds of men, G-d will reward the good and punish the wicked, The Messiah will come, The dead will be resurrected, and so on, and are very fond to sticking to these beliefs.

When?Judaism is believed to have started in 2000 B.C.E

Where?Judaism is a worldwide religion that spans over every country in the world, though it is believed to have origionated from the (now) Isrealy and Palestinian territories.

Jewish prayer is prayed three times daily, and is done with extreme care. There are also many Jewish holdays such as Yom Kippur, which is the "Day of Atonement"

Judaism is considered the "mother faith", from which religions such as Islam and Christianity began. They have 13 principles of faith, and keep "kosher", which means that their meat must be prepared in a special certain way, and not just carelessly slaughtered.
