Here's where we discuss all the BIG issues. The nature of G-d's existence (and the role His creations are expected to play); trust in G-d's protection and guidance vs. our responsibility to make an effort to protect and guide ourselves. Stuff like that.

All the big questions.

Don't think we've got all the answers though. Just asking the questions should be enough...

These pages are brought to you from a traditional Jewish approach. These are the beliefs that are held central to Judaism. They are the beliefs that fill Judaism's holy books - from the Bible, through the Talmud, through the writings of the medieval scholars, like Rashi and Maimonides, and all the way until the most recently published works of Torah thought (like the one you're now reading).

According to Maimonides, the famous 12th Century Jewish Scholar, there are thirteen principles which form the foundation of Judaism's vision of reality. These thirteen principles are the basics of Jewish belief.


Rabbi Boruch Clinton teaches at the Ottawa Torah Institute yeshiva high school and Machon Sarah high school for girls (both in Ottawa, Canada). You may reach him with comments and questions at dbclinton@cyberus.ca
