Do you mean Judaism? If so, there's no evidence of such a thing in DW that I'm aware of.

I also agree. I can find nothing in any of the books that is the equivalent to Judaism (and I have not felt the need to add it in to my version of Legend).

Reading the "Bloodsword" books, you find a references to the Magian cult - which appears to have preceded Ta-ashim.
» Ridaq adds: "It is as the Illuminate said when he stripped away the Magian priest's magic: the gift that is given by taking away is the gift of possibilities."
(It is possible that the Magians might be seen as a vague equivalent of Zoroastrians)

Before (and possibly at concurrent with) the Magians would be the Gods of Kaikuhuru and the imported gods of Emphidor and Selentium.

What I like about Legend is that it is close enough to our world that it is easy to see equivalents which, in turn makes it easier to both describe and role-play; but that it is also sufficiently different that it is clearly not our world. Thus we have Gatanades and Akaabah rather than our own, well-known equivalents (although Mars appears to remain as one of the principal gods of the Old Selentines and we have Woden, Tor and Loge as Odin, Thor and Loki).

This is why I'm trying to settle on a name to replace "Mary" that sits well in several languages. I'm not really happy with my suggestion of Marta, as it's just too similar. Mara is tempting... But, again, it is very similar to Mary (and it reminds me of Marya Morevna - from Slavic folklore).
Would the name work? "Holy Mara, mother of Gatanades, bless this (insert name of thing here)..."
