When Did Judaism Become a Religion?


What is the year Judaism is said to begin. What year is Islam said to begin. Where did the first Jews live



  1. While the consensus of opinion is that Abraham is considered to be the first Jew, Judaism as an organized, formal religion began in the year 1313 BCE, with the Giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

    According to historians, Islam began in the year 622 CE.

    The first Jew was Abraham, who was born in Mesopotamia and lived in Israel.
