Orthodox Judaism is the most religiously stringent of the three main streams of American Judaism.
Eventually, the term came to be embraced by the traditionalists as an indication of faithfulness to customary religious practice. Today, a number of organizations self-identify as Orthodox, most prominently the Orthodox Union, which operates the largest kosher certifying agency in the world. Some Orthodox Jews prefer to describe themselves as followers of “Torah Judaism.”
I loved your timeline I can study the bible form it.

The destruction of the second Temple was significant because Jewish people no longer had a primary place to gather, so they shifted their focus to worshipping in local synagogues.
