Judaism is one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions, dating back 3,000 years from the time of Abraham. The Book of Genesis states that the nation of Israel (i.e. the Jewish people) descended from Abraham through his second son, Isaac, and Isaac’s son, Jacob. The Hebrew Bible, also known as the Tanakh, describes the covenantal relationship that God developed with the Children of Israel (i.e. the descendants of Jacob), and forms the basis for the laws and customs which are followed to this day.
As the belief in God as unitary and solitary is a central tenet of Judaism, God’s only relationship is with His people. Many of the daily prayers reflect this relationship by acknowledging God as a source of all morality in the world and recognising that God cares about humanity in much the same way that we care about God.
