Judaism is known for being one of the oldest monotheistic religions at over 3,500 years old. It was founded by Moses in the city of Cannon at the time, which is now modern day Israel.
Jews believe that there is one God that they can each have a personal relationship with. They believe in the Torah and the Ten Commandments and that God chose them to set an example of holiness in the world
The name most often used for God in the Hebrew Bible is Tetragrammaton, but Jews typically do not pronounce the entire name and refer to God as HaShem, which means "the Name".
Each year for eight days, Jews celebrate Hanukkah. It is a celebration of the re-dedication of the Temple of Jerusalem, and they light the Menorah, play the dreidel and eat traditional foods.

About 13 million people worldwide follow Judaism, and most of those people live in the United States or Israel.
