According The Bible, Judaism began with Abraham in Genesis ch. 12. Abraham was born in the Hebrew year 1948 (1812 BCE). Abraham was called the Hebrew in Genesis 14:13, since he was a descendant of Eber, father of the Hebrews.
Abram was a citizen of Ur of the Chaldees, a region in what is now in Iraq. Genesis chapter 12 relates that God blessed Abram and told him to pack up his family and move to an undisclosed location.
Based on Abram's faith, he packed up his family and traveled west, eventually crossing the Jordan river and arriving in the land of Canaan, which is in modern-day Israel. In the land of Canaan, God promised the land to Abram and there changed his name to Abraham, meaning Father of many nations (Genesis ch.17).
Because Abraham trusted God (Genesis 15:6) and obeyed His commands (Genesis 26:5), it is said that Abraham is the father of Judaism. The complete story of Abraham, his journeys and his life is recorded in Genesis (11:27 through 25:9).
Judaism was founded by Abraham in the Fertile Crescent.
Abraham (18th century BCE) was born in Ur (Mesopotamia; now Iraq), where he first repudiated idolatry. He then sojourned in Harran (Syria) for several years, and then lived most of his life in Canaan (Israel).
It was in Canaan that Abraham lived most of his life, made a covenant with God (Genesis ch.15), and raised a family to be the center of carrying on his traditions (Genesis 18:19).
Abraham's family carried on his teachings voluntarily. Judaism as a binding, permanent entity, was set forth between God and the Israelite nation descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob at Mount Sinai in the time of Moses (Exodus ch.19, ch.24, and 34:27).All of the above places are in the ancient Fertile Crescent.
Abraham was the founder of Judaism, in the Holy Land.

Our tradition is that what we call Judaism began with Abraham, around 1800 BCE.
Abraham is believed to have lived (if he lived) at about this time. If you consider Abraham to be the beginner of Judaism, then yes, Judaism begins in 1800 B.C.E. Most scholars place the latest date of Judaism's formation at around 550 B.C.E., which is 1,250 years later.
1800 BCE is usually given as the date when Abraham lived. If you believe that Judaism started with Abraham, as is the typical Jewish belief, then, yes, Judaism began in 1800 BCE. However, there are a variety of different opinions which posit the beginning of Judaism anywhere from 2000 BCE to 550 BCE.
Abraham was the founding father of Judaism.
