The God of Judaism as revealed to the Prophet Moses on Mount Sinai during the era of the exodus. Yahweh is an elaboration of the four Hebrew language letters YHWH, also known as the Tetragrammaton. The Orthodox Jewish tradition considers the name too holy to be pronounced out loud or even written, as do many individual Jews in other traditions. In writing, it is often depicted as Y**H. In synagogue and other rituals, meanwhile, other names of God are used, such as Elohim, which means simply god, and Adonai, or my Lord. The precise meaning of the name is unclear, with many scholars believing that it refers to He who brings into existence or even simply I am. Jehovah is a Christian variation of the name.
