Welcome

Derech HaTorah offers information about Judaism from a Rationalistic, Tanakh-based (Karaite) perspective. This site has a no spam policy. This site is based in the United States of America. This site offers information about Conversion to Judaism, the Basics of Judaism, Jewish Texts, Jewish Law, Religious Life, Jewish History and Jewish Apologetics. My goal is to make available a wide variety of plain, basic information about Judaism, written from a Rationalistic Non-Denominational Jewish perspective.This site is copyrighted.
