Well they believe in god but follow the old testament,\ ( or at least part of it)

the search topic found on google can give more information:


The name of God used most often in the Hebrew Bible is the Tetragrammaton (YHWHHebrew: יהוה‎), frequently anglicized as Jehovah orYahweh but written in most editions of the Bible as "the Lord". Jews traditionally do not pronounce it, and instead refer to God as HaShem, literally "the Name".

Jewish sects

  • their is Orthodox Judaism witch is the approach to religious Judaism which subscribes to a tradition of mass revelation and adheres to the interpretation and application of the laws and ethics of the Torah as legislated in the Talmudic texts by the Tanaim and Amoraim.
  • then their is Conservative Judaism (known as Masorti Judaism outside North America) is a major confessional division within Judaism, which views Religious Law, or Halakha, as both binding and subject to historical development. The movement considers its approach to Law as the authentic and traditional one, maintaining both fealty to received forms and flexibility in their interpretation.
  • than lastly Reform Judaism (also known as Liberal Judaism or Progressive Judaism) is a major confessional division within Judaism, which emphasizes the evolving nature of the religion, the superiority of its ethical aspects compared to the ceremonial ones, and a belief in a continuous revelation not centered on the theophany at Mount Sinai.
