Judaism 01

This KS3 RE quiz takes a look at Judaism. Judaism is the "religion, philosophy, and way of life" of the Jewish people. Judaism has nearly 14 million adherents in the world and is one of the world's oldest religions. According to the 2011 Census of England and Wales, 263,000 people identified as Jewish, with 6,000 adherents recorded in the Census of the same year for Scotland.

Judaism is a monotheistic religion which originated in the geographical region where the modern state of Israel and the Palestinian territories are located. It is the oldest of the three "Abrahamic" faiths, each of which traces its history back to the figure of Abraham, with whom God made a covenant, according to the Bible. Jewish scripture is known as Torah, which can mean the first five books of Moses, but also the Bible as a whole (the Written Torah), or the entire body of Jewish teachings. The Torah is written on scrolls of parchment and is kept in the "ark" in Synagogues. These scrolls are treated with great reverence when read during services.
