Latvia birth certificate

I am doing some research with documents my husband inherited from his mother, she was born in Riga 1929. As indicated from the image taken from her birth certificate below, Line 6 is Nationality, (žīds-Jew); Line 7 is Faith. Faith is listed as “mozus”. I am curious why faith was listed as such; is this a reference to Mosus? I am interested in understanding the use of different terms are in different instances (ie. Ebrejs, žīds, mozus). A great-grandparent’s Latvian passport uses žīds and ebrejs.
