Origin

The main prophet of Judaism isn't proclaimed as their leader is. The leader of the Jewish people is God and only one God. The religion was founded in the Middle East. It isn't exactly known where but Israel definitely is the most populated region of Jewish people. Judaism has a connection to Christianity in that both religions obey one God. Christianity is lead by Jesus who is their savior, but is God on earth, so still considered one God.

Major Beliefs

The holy book of the Jewish people is the Torah. The Torah is the five books of Moses telling the origins of Judaism and its laws. Places of worship all over the world for Judaism are chapels, certain churches, temples, and in some cases they urge you to pray to God anywhere you can and that makes it sacred. The religious leader of Judaism is God, they are not actually lead by a human on this planet right now.
