Derech HaTorah is a place where I will write about my experiences of embracing a Torah life. I also offer information for those questioning Christianity or other faith systems as well as those who are Jewish but do not have a strong religious background. I write from a Rationalistic, Tanakh-Based Jewish perspective. This site is copyrighted. Everything on this site is free to use with written permission.

My journey through Judaism is guided by three adages:

“Choice Through Knowledge”
“Search the Scripture well and do not rely on my opinion”
“Tradition has a vote but not a veto”

All of these adages (the first from Reform Judaism, the second from Karaite Judaism, and the third from Reconstructionist Judaism) is about making choices about Jewish ritual practice based on study of Torah and the understanding of the meanings of Jewish traditions.
