Welcome to the Judaism community on Codidact!
Will you help us build our community of learners? Drop into our study hall, ask questions, help others with answers to their questions, share a d'var torah if you're so inclined, invite your friends, and join us in building this community together. Not an ask-the-rabbi service, just people at all levels learning together.
The Essence of Judaism
What is hateful to you, do not do to others. That is the whole Torah. The rest is the explanation. Go learn! ~ Rabbi Hillel
I would like to know the ouisa (essence) of Judaism (the oldest of the Abrahamic Triad of World Religions). There's the Decalog of course, but is there more? I ask because YHWHY and the Decalog have been adopted by Christianity, which, to me, looks very much like identity theft. How does Judaism distinguish itself from Christianity and also Islam?
