Judaism is one of the three major monotheistic religions, along with Christianity and Islam, and the original organized religion of the Jewish people (as with Christianity, there are different if less numerous branches and movements). The sacred text the Torah was largely used to form the Old Testament of The Bible. The spiritual leader is the rabbi, which traditionally combined aspects of the priest with those of teacher and scholar. Holy days and events associated with Judaism include Hanukkah, seder (the Passover feast), and the bar mitzvah (coming of age for male children). The traditional male head covering is called a kippah in Hebrew but a yarmulke in Yiddish.
