While I don't think that any religion is truly unique, I can tell you perhaps three major things that make Judaism different from Christianity:
1. In Judaism, action and deeds are generally viewed as being more important than faith. In Christianity, faith is generally viewed as being more important over action and deeds.
2. Jews do not believe in the Christian concept of "original sin." In Judaism, all babies are born into the world free of the stain of Adam's sin. Interestingly, the doctrine of original sin wasn't officially adopted by Christianity until hundreds of years after the religion's inception.
3. Finally (and most obviously), Jews are still waiting for the Mashiach (Messiah) to arrive.
