´╗┐Judaism started way back in 1,300 bc, Mesopotamia. Judaism is considered the first monotheistic religion and is the basis of both the islam and christian religions. Their idea of God is that he is a unitary, solitary god who has a personality and everything. It's headquarters is Israel, and most of it's followers are hebrews which makes it an ethnoreligious group.
Jewish philosophers often debate over weather God is immenent or transcendent. Their ideas on the afterlife vary as well as some think that there is nonexistence. Some believe in reincarnation, Some have other beliefs. They belief that life's purpose is to obey the Jewish law and atone for sin. Some of their practices are circumcising their babies and have bar mitzfhas. A key person is Guru Nanak (DF)
