JUDAISM HISTORY

Judaism is a religious tradition with history dating back nearly four thousand years, in the ancient near eastern place of Canaan (which is now Israel and Palestinian). Originating as the beliefs and practices of the people known as "Israel," classical, or rabbinic, Judaism did not emerge until the 1st century C.E. Judaism traces its heritage to the covenant God made with Abraham and his lineage — that God would make them a sacred people and give them a holy land.
