Hinduism history would date back to some times in 3000BCE while Judaism, on the contrary, could be said to originate around 1300 BCE according to traditions. In terms of geography, Hinduism is mainly established and practiced in the Indian subcontinent, which is also referred to as the place of birth of the religion, but Judaism is pivoted in Israel, which the Jews claim is the end of their forefathers.

Unlike Judaism, whose inception is credited to Abraham as the founder of the religion, the inception of Hinduism is not credited to a certain person of any kind, which is actually uncommon. People who practice Hinduism are called Hindus, while those who practice Judaism are referred to as Jews. The Hindus refer to Puranas, Gita, Upanishad, and Vedas as their scripture, written in Sanskrit, while the Jews only consider the Torah and Tanakh, which also means the Jewish Bible as their religious text which is written in Hebrew.

The main difference between these two religions is their fundamental beliefs. Judaism is monotheistic and polytheism, while Hindus believe that every deity possesses the same traits as the highest deity. Jews, on the other hand, recognize and honor only one God. There is also a difference concerning where these religions are practiced. Hinduism is mainly observed in the Indian subcontinent, which is also the birthplace of Hinduism.

Judaism came from Israel, and the Jews think of this place as the land of their forefathers. Jews credit Abraham as being the foundation of Judaism. The language from the original texts in Hinduism is written in Sanskrit. Jews, on the other hand, read and study the Torah. Hinduism is more God-centered, rather than prophet centered like Judaism. The Jews also put their faith into Angels, whom they claim are messengers of God, but you cannot see them.
