n. An Abrahamic, monotheistic ethnic religion that is more than 5,000 years old.
"Judaism is a religion of action and obligations, which is primarily concerned with how to live a good life in this world. If you truly focus your life on improving yourself and fixing the world, then you will simply be so immersed in the meaningfulness this world offers you that nihilistic thought patterns will lose all meaning to you."

ultimately from יְהוּדָה 'Judah'
"Followers of Judaism, called Jews, base their beliefs on the body of writings and doctrines contained in the Torah and Talmud. All movements of Judaism share certain principles, among them a belief in one God, who is incorporeal (without a shape or body); a belief in the Ten Commandments and the Torah; observance of the Sabbath; celebration of Jewish festivals and holidays; and male circumcision. Different movements in Judaism vary in their interpretations of halakhah (Jewish law), levels of observance of those laws, and reevaluations of the laws and rituals throughout history." (JPS)
