Orthodox Judaism


Orthodox Judaism is the approach to religious Judaism which subscribes to a tradition of mass revelation and adheres to the interpretation and application of the laws and ethics of the Torah as legislated in the Talmudic texts by the Tannaim and Amoraim.

Amoraim refers to the Jewish scholars of the period from about 200 to 500 CE, who "said" or "told over" the teachings of the Oral Torah.

Tannaim were the Rabbinic sages whose views are recorded in the Mishnah, from approximately 10-220 CE.

Judaism encompasses the religion, philosophy, culture and way of life of the Jewish people.
