Karaism is the practice of Judaism as dictated by the Torah and Tanakh, the Hebrew Bible. Karaites believe that the Tanakh (which includes the Torah) is the only legitimate source of Jewish law. Consequently, Karaites reject the Talmud (Rabbinic Oral Law) and other Rabbinic additions to Jewish law. Karaism does not reject Biblical interpretation. Rather, it holds every interpretation up to the same objective scrutiny regardless of its source.
Please only submit sites for this category that deal with the theology, practice and beliefs of Karaism. Reactions to Karaism should be published under Religion and Spirituality: Judaism.
Orthodox Jewry is perhaps the most frequently misunderstood branch of Judaism. It encompasses many groups with great variances from one another. However, because of our desire to encourage Achdus (the love of all Jews) - we consider an Orthodox synagogue or organization for these purposes to be one that is fully Shomer Shabbat (Sabbath observing), and follows the halachas (Jewish laws) as defined in our Torah, Talmud, Shulchan Aruach and other major texts.
Please submit only synagogues and/or organizations that are strictly Shomer Shabbat and adhere to or represent Torah Jewry.
Reconstructionism is the newest of the four major North American Jewish religious movements. It defines Judaism as the evolving religious civilization of the Jewish people. This category lists the web sites of Reconstructionist congregations, as well as other resources.

The Samaritans are an ancient people based in northern Israel. There origins are Jewish but they split with the Jewish community in antiquity over doctrinal issues. They accept the Torah with variations including a distinct version of the Ten Commandments and their rituals are centred around Mount Gerizim. Today they number no more than a few hundred people with roughly half their community living in the Palestinian Authority near Mount Gerizim and half in the Israeli state.
