How Did Judaism Get Its Name?

Learn the Origins of Judaism

Have you ever wondered what are the origins of Judaism? Why are Jews called “Jews”? For some religions, it’s pretty obvious. Christianity is named for Christ and Buddhism for Buddha. But what about Judaism?

Learn how Judaism got its name from Judah, the fourth son of Jacob, who would later become the founding member of the tribe.

This project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of its Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
