My religion is Judaism, of a fairly traditional sort. Judaism does not have a well-defined set of dogmatic propositions. In the Middle Ages Maimonides formulated thirteen principles of faith, but others, notably Joseph Albo, made do with fewer. No list of doctrines has ever been recognized as binding (see Kellner 2006). It is closer to the truth to say that traditional Judaism has standard sentences, with propositional content that varies within a family resemblance. These sentences a devotee is expected to employ in the religious life in a fairly standard way in common with the body of believers. But the propositional content of these sentences might vary between different devotees, and at times vary greatly, while preserving the common religious identity of believers.
