Judaism is a religious system that originated in ancient Israel.
Its teachings have become deeply ingrained in our culture and are seen as a unique religion and as the world’s foremost spiritual source.
Today, there are about 6 million Jews worldwide.
They live in about 150 countries.
They are divided into three main denominations: Orthodox, Reform and Conservative Judaism.
Reform Judaism is the oldest and most established denomination, while Conservative Judaism is considered the most liberal.
Both Reform and Orthodox Judaism believe in the one God.
The Orthodox are more conservative, and have traditionally been less religious.
Reform Jews also often believe in God’s forgiveness of sins and have often shunned many traditional religious practices, including marriage and prayer.
Conservative Jews are more liberal.
