Judaism on Education[edit]

Could we include the role of Jewish organizations in Judaism? Orthodox Union, Aish HaTorah, Chabad and Rohr JLI?

Lead sentence[edit]

The lead sentence currently states: "Judaism (from Latin: Iudaismus, derived from Greek Ἰουδαϊσμός, originally from Hebrew יהודה‎, Yehudah, "Judah";[1][2] in Hebrew: יהדות‎, Yahadut, the distinctive characteristics of the Judean ethnos) ...". This is hard to read and contains information better suited to an etymology section in the article. Any suggestions on how to fix it? LK (talk) 03:14, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

I think it's fine the way it is. That's precisely why it is in (). You noticed those, didn't you? Debresser (talk) 04:30, 10 July 2017 (UTC)
I think Lawrencekhoo has a point. That's a long parenthetical for an opening sentence, and much of its contents are either not very informative or unclear. For the former, are Latin and Greek spellings really critical information? We could write: "originally from Hebrew יהודה‎, Yehudah, "Judah", via Latin and Greek". On the other hand, the reference to Yahadut seems unclear. The concept covered in this article is not the same as "the distinctive characteristics of the Judean ethnos" (that would be closer to "Jewishness"), so that part is just confusing.
