Judaism is the oldest monotheistic religion. It was originated in Ancient Israel. Many Jews live in Israel today.
The original founder of Judaism was Abraham. Abraham was a biblical figure, and his descendants ended up becoming Jews themselves. According to the Bible, God led Abraham to Canaan.
Jews are monotheistic, meaning they only believe in one god. Their god title is Yahweh. It's always been important to teach their children about Judaism. They also believe in justice and righteousness. Finally, they think God game them laws they need to follow.
This religion spread throughout the Persian Empire. They scattered toward the land of Judah. They also spread to other parts of Ancient Israel.
