Judaism is the original of the three Abrahamic faiths, which also includes Christianity and Islam. It is one of the oldest religions still existing today. It began as the religion of the small nation of the Hebrews, and through thousands of years of suffering, persecution, dispersion, and occasional victory, has continued to be a profoundly influential culture. Today, 14 million people identify themselves as Jewish. Modern Judaism is a complex phenomenon that incorporates both a nation and a religion, and often combines strict adherence to ritual laws with a more liberal attitude towards religious belief.
The most important teaching and tenet is that there is one God, incorporeal and eternal, who wants all people to do what is just and merciful. All people are created in the image of God and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Their most important religious text is the Bible itself (what some Christians call the "Old Testament"), consisting of the books of the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings. The Torah is Judaism's most important text. It contains stories and commandments that teach about life and death. It contains the 10 Commandments as well as the 613 commandments (mitzvot). All Jews consider the 10 Commandments to be the most important commandments in the Torah.
