Key Figures in Judaism:

G-d:
God is the greatest key figure for Judaism. He is the creator of the universe, and he is well respected. There are many beliefs about god. God or Lord is very sacred to Jews. They do not say his name aloud and they spell it G-d and L-rd.

Prophets:
A prophet is a spokesman for God, a person who is chosen by God to speak to the people on God's behalf and convey a message or teaching. They are role models of holiness, scholarship and closeness to God. They set the standards for the entire community. A prophet is not necessarily a Jew. Some other Jewish Prophets were Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, etc.

 

Moses:
Moses was the greatest prophet, leader and teacher. Moses is described as the only person who knew god face-to-face and mouth-to-mouth. The name Moses comes from the words "take-out", because Moses was taken out of the river. When Moses' s mother could not hide him anymore, she put him in a little basket down the river. God appeared to Moses and chose him to lead the people out of the Egyptian salvery and to the Promised Land. Moses then led the people out of Egypt across the sea to freedom, and brought them to Mount Sinai, where God gave the people Torah.
