Judaism started 4,000 years ago. It spread across Israel, and they were known as Hebrews or Jews. Hebrews were a group of people living near the Fertile Crescent. The Hebrews recorded their events and laws in a book called the Torah. The Hebrews history tells of a great flood that devastated their land. In 1800 BC a famine (an extreme shortage of food) caused the Hebrews to move to Egypt, where they were enslaved. In 722 BC the Assyrian empire known for there violence defeated the Hebrews, and in 586 BC the Babylonians defeated the Hebrews as well. There were a diaspora (Jews living outside of isreal) scattering of Jews around the world, without a homeland. Jews were monotheistic as they believe in just one God. They believe in a covenant or an agreement with God. They also believed that the Old Testament. The Hebrew Bible firsts five books are the Torah. One of the major beliefs were the 10 commandments. The Ten Commandments are religious duties and a guide for moral conduct. The Ten Commandments will be show below this text. The Ten Commandments effected the Hebrews life because you needed to follow these to live the right way of life. The Hebrews celebrate 4 holidays throughout the year. They celebrate Passover, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Chanukah. Passover celebrates the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year. Yom Kippur is the day of atonement, and Chanukah is an 8 day celebration. So that's how this is going to end. This is everything (well not actually everything but a lot) you need to about Hindusim, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Judaism.
