Judaism is the world's oldest monotheistic religion. It was founded by Abraham in the Middle East. The Jewish holy book is called the Torah. Jerusalem is the main holy city of Judaism.

Judaism influenced its followers by providing guidelines for them to follow. These guidelines were called the 10 Commandments and were the basis for any laws in Jewish culture.

Judaism directly influenced Christianity and later Islam. All three of these religions even share some beliefs.
