Hanukkah is a Jewish celebration.The history of Hanukkah is as follows: The Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks) under Antiochus Epiphanes (2nd century BCE), at the instigation of the Hellenizers, had forbidden various Torah-practices such as Sabbath-observance and circumcision, rededicated the Jewish Temple to a Greek idol, and pressed the Jews to offer up sacrifices to the idol. One of the leading elder Jewish sages called upon the people to keep observing the Torah anyway; and if necessary, to…
It depends on how the word "figure" is read. If it is referring to which human being is the most important historical personage in Judaism, that would be the Prophet Moses, who received the Torah and helped the Jews escape bondage in Egypt. If it is referring to which symbols represent Judaism, those would be the Star of David and the Menorah (or candelabra).

Judaism is not centralized today and has no single worldwide leader. (Judaism is a Congregationalist religion.) In the past, one religious leader of Judaism was Abraham, who founded Judaism. Also, another notable leader was Aaron. Aaron was the founder of the priesthood. Answer Judaism does not have a central religious leader. People who practice Judaism attend synagogue services that are led by a Rabbi.

Sounds like a Zen koan. In Judaism, a Jew is fully a member of the Jewish people if he/she was born Jewish, or had a valid conversion into Judaism. Religious Judaism holds that a Jew can most fully express and nurture their Judaism by living according to the Torah. This is called by several names: religious Judaism; Torah-Judaism; Orthodox Judaism.
Judaism is a religion. A Jew is a person that believes in Judaism. You were correct. Judaism is the religion, a Jew is a person who follows Judaism. Jew is a word for a Jewish person. Judaism is to Jews as Christianity is to Christians. The other issue is that Judaism is not a typical religion in that the son of a religious Jew who is himself not religious at all (atheist for example) is…
All Jews have the same Torah.There are Jews who are more stringent (Orthodox) or less stringent (Conservative, Reform) in their observance of the Torah's commands. Orthodox Jews believe that the Torah must be fully observed (Deuteronomy 13:5). They keep the laws of Judaism as codified in the Shulchan Arukh (Code of Jewish Law), which lists the laws of the Torah and Talmud. Torah-study is seen as very important (Deuteronomy 5:1); and the modern world is…
Although Zionism is a Jewish phenomenon, it does not claim to be a form of Judaism. Rather, it is an emotional, political and practical entity within much of the Jewish people, but by no means all of them. There are both religious and secular Zionists in large numbers. Many Orthodox Jews feel that Zionism has attempted to replace the religious core of Judaism with secular values plus watered-down Judaism.
