In 458 BCE Ezra led a second group of Babylonian Jews to Jerusalem to reestablish the law of Moses. He compiled and redacted the Torah from a number of preexisting source documents and instituted very exclusive fundamentalist doctrines including a ban on Jews marrying Gentiles. Thus Orthodox Judaism as it is known to the present day was born.
