Judaism is the religion of the world’s approximately 15 million Jews. It is one of the oldest religions and the first monotheistic religion to teach the belief in one God.
The basic laws and teachings of Judaism come from the Torah, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. These are taught in both written and oral traditions.
The Hebrew Bible, or Torah, is the most important holy book of Judaism. It is a collection of writings called the “Tanakh” in Hebrew. It is divided into three parts – Torah (Instruction), Nevi’im (Prophets)and Ketuvim (Writings).
