From what I understand, and I don’t know much, is only the Orthodox Jews (which is a modern movement, I think starting around the time of the Protestant reformation in Christendom) really follow the Talmud. Reform Judaism sees it as a historical curiosity but doesn’t pay it much mind seriously. Conservative Judaism sees https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halakha as authoritative, although they study the Talmud for historical reasons (as it fed into the Halakha but the Talmud also has a lot of stuff best left in the past). Corrections if I’m wrong here.
