Judaism



Judaism is a monotheistic religion founded in the Middle East around 500 BCE. It is the tenth largest religion in the world, and its history, texts, and traditions have strong influence in both Christianity and Islam, which both hold the Jewish figure Abraham as the patriarch of faith. Judaism is one of the oldest monotheistic religions in existence, and its followers have a long history of suffering from bias and persecution, especially with the rise of Christianity in the West.
