Judaism believes that there is a moral order in the universe and that righteousness is rewarded and evil punished. The Hebrew Bible also contains references to Sheol, the Nether World. The concept of Hell as a place of eternal damnation, however, is unknown to it. Indeed, it is contrary to an essential feature in Judaism which postulates belief in God as a loving father who concerns Himself with the welfare of all humanity and who is ready to forgive.
