Hinduism

-monistic

-no single founder

-reincarnation, endless cycle of rebirths

-karma, What goes around comes around..

-Originated in India

Judaism

-No single founder, based on national revelation

-The Ten Commandments revealed to Moses

-Chosen to keep the Torah

-reincarnation, some souls are reincarnated into new people

-Monotheistic

-Originated in Israel

Similarities

-both very ancient religions

-both are actually monotheistic. In Hinduism, every god is a personality of the one God Narayana. In Judaism, the entire Universe is part of G-d. Indeed, we are all an aspect of G-d.

- both have sacred writings (Vedas in Hinduism, Tanakh in Judaism)

-both are a Caste System, by there society. Similarities of there society-related caste system.

-- in Hinduism there is the Priestly class, the warrior class, and others

-- in Judaism there currently is a Priestly tribe, the Levites, the High Priest subgroup of the Levites - Kohens, Yehuda tribe, Benyamin tribe, and the Yisrael tribe. Although these tribes are in place, there is minimal impact on life outside of certain religious ceremonies and life cycle events. There is no issue in marrying between tribes, etc.

- In Hinduism, the Priestly class cannot marry outside their cast. Marrying outside the caste is strictly forbidden.

- In Judaism, the Kohens are not supposed to marry converts, divorced women (although this isn't often followed).

-Hope it helps :)
