Summary

The religion of the Jewish people and before them the ancient Hebrews. Jews believe in one all-powerful god. The religion is based upon a covenant that was given to Abraham about 2000 BC. The covenant was renewed by Moses about 1200 BC. God's will is made known to Jews through the Torah - a book which indicates the way in which they should live.
