Welcome

Derech HaTorah offers information about Judaism from a Rationalistic Tanakh-Based 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 primarily from a non-Orthodox, Non-Denominational perspective.
