The Talmud not the Torah (Bible) is the chief authority of Judaism
Most Christians are under the impression that Judaism is primarily based on the biblical Old Testament. Actually the ultimate authority for Judaism is not the Bible but on what they call the Babylonian Talmud, a series of writings set down in Babylon in the sixth century after Christ.
The American Heritage Dictionary describes the Talmud as “constituting the basis of religious authority for traditional Judaism.”
The authoritative Universal Jewish Encyclopedia compiled by the leading Rabbinic organizations of the world, makes it very clear that the Talmud, not the Torah or Old Testament, is the supreme authority for Judaism.

But, then, most christians don't recognize the old testament god as the blood-thirsty psychopath that he's portrayed as. The racial elitism and perversion evidenced in the talmud would likely incite a holy war, were it widely known. But (luckily?) the truth is irrelevant; it's perception that matters.
