Rabanites vs. Karaites vs. Samaritans

I just wanted to provide a quick overview of three Jewish denominations: Rabbanites, Karaites and Samaritans and what books they believe to be divine.

Rabbanites (aka Rabbinic Judaism):

It comes in all shapes and forms and is known as "the Jews" in colloquial sense of this word as this denomination is the most widespread and common. This denomination accepts NK (Neviim and Ketuvim / Prophets and Writings) of the TaNaKh (Torah/Neviim/Ketuvim) plus extra biblical writings known as Oral Law or Oral Torah (Torah shebaal peh) which is basically Talmud (Mishnah and Gemarah) as well as other derrivative Rabbinic writings and commentaries.

Karaites (Karaite Judaism) 

This denomination accepts NK but rejects Oral Torah. However, Karaites have their own traditions that determine how the Torah is interpreted, which is similar to Rabbanites and their Oral Torah.


This denomination accepts only Torah plus the Book of Joshua. Samaritans also have their own traditions (Oral Torah) that define how Torah is interpreted.

Here is the summary comparison:

  • Rabbanites: Written Torah + Neviim + Ketuvim + "Oral Torah"
  • Karaites:     Written Torah + Neviim + Ketuvim + "traditions"
  • Samaritans: Written Torah + Joshuah + "traditions"
  • Me:             Written Torah ONLY

As you can see, not a single Jewish sect or denomination follows the Written Torah. All these sects and denominations add something to the Written Torah which is in clear violation of Torah's prohibition of adding to it. Basically, there is no pure form of "Judaism" that exists. This is the most important and significant detail to be considered if you are choosing what to believe.

I am looking to marry

Hello everyone!

I apologize for posting this here but I do not know where else to turn...

I am currently looking to marry and I would like to get acquainted with a woman that would be interested in courtship.

My only absolute requirement is that she is Torah observant. She has to be living (or willing to live) by the Written Torah. Everything else is negotiable.

I know that women my age(33) visit my blog so if you are one of them and if you are interested in a husband and marriage, please contact me.

I also know that many older people who have adult children visit my blog, so if you are looking for a good husband for your daughter - let me know.

More information about me can be found on the "About Me" page of my blog here.

My email is asigalov61@gmail.com. Serious inquires only. 

Thank you very much,

God Bless,


Aleksandr Sigalov.
