Actually, it is more nuanced than that.

I think there is a greater difference between "non-religious" Jews and
orthodox Jews, than there is between orthodox Jews and orthodox (small
"o") Christians. Further, there is more similarity among liberal
(Reformed) Jews and liberal "Christians" than among orthodox and
liberal Christian or Jews. Actually, orthodox Judaism is more like
traditional Roman Catholicism (the original liberal "Christianity") in
that they both take tradition as having equal authority to Scripture.

There are more differences than these, but there are a lot more
threads than the simplistic statements below say.
