In fact there are a number of movements within Judaism. The three main ones are: Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Within Orthodox Judaism there are several 'sects', and while of course all Jews share the same core beliefs, the groups may disagree passionately on other issues. Judaism as a religion has always encouraged debate and discussion. There is also Progressive Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, but these are not as large or influential as the three major movements outlined at the start of this answer. And the groups/movements are 'fluid' in that any Jew can walk into any Synagogue, in any country, and immediately feel at home, even if they are not part of that particular movement. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
