Judaism is an ancient Abrahamic religion with the Torah or Hebrew Bible being the faith’s sacred text. The Torah consists of 613 Commandments which every Jew is expected to observe, encompassing every aspect of Jewish living. It began almost four thousand years ago with the Hebrew people of the Middle East. Abraham is regarded as the Father of the Jewish nation as He advocated and spread monotheism. A central tenet of Judaism is the adherence of the Sabbath, occurring on every Saturday, and on this day, Jews refrain from creative work and instead focus on spiritual growth and family. Jews also adhere to the kosher dietary laws such as not mixing dairy and meat, consuming meat is allowed only from permitted species of fish and animals.
