Perhaps you've got some spiritual holes that need filling. Or maybe there are questions you've always had about Judaism but you just didn't feel like hanging around crowded book stores holding bright yellow manuals and looking like a Dummy. Or are you just starting out and need a quiet, friendly place where you can explore the basics of Judaism at your own speed and in your own company?

Throw another log on the fire (or do a quick backup on your work files) and settle down with...
The Judaism Primer

If you want to know the Jewish approach to some issue; to define who the Jewish people are; to taste and smell and feel Judaism - reach for Torah. But what is the Torah? Can you pin it down and define its borders? Where do you start? Why not right here...?
Go to the Basics of Torah...

Who is God? How does He run His world? What does He expect from us, His creations? Judaism has lots to say about all this and here's the place where we'll try to cover some of the essentials.
Go to the Basics of Jewish Belief...

Recent events have, once again, drawn attention to ancient Jerusalem and its temples. It's old news (some of it nearly 3000 years old, actually), but like everything else, connected with Judaism and the Torah, it never seems to get stale. In case your appetite has been stimulated by all this talk and you want to learn more and delve deeper, then take some time to look at this material. You'll find high-quality computer-generated images of the magnificent second temple buildings and a wealth of information about their historical, philosophical and religious significance.

Be our guest...go to the Temple.
