Roots of Judaism


4000 years ago most people believed that there were many Gods that controlled things. Polytheism is when a religion believes in many Gods. Judaism was written down in a series of books called The Torah. A man named Abram was sent a message by God to spread the word that there is only one God. Abram also convinced his family to start worshiping God not idols.
