Our Goals:



*) Build Schools worldwide where our systematic Torah theology is taught.

*) Open rehabilitation centers worldwide where our systematic Torah theology is taught.



Why?


Because the proper keeping of the Judaic law code is this world’s only hope for survival.
Although it is true that remnants of this code permeate much of the monotheistic world today, yet still the world fails to progress ethically. This is due to equally widespread misunderstanding and misapplication of the Judaic code of law.


The ultimate Goal is to impact and improve the ethical behavior of people.


Torah Judaism International is the organization.
Our schools carry the name Birkath Avraham (Abraham’s Blessing)
Our tradition is called Dor Deah. Followers of this tradition are known as "Dor Daim," or "Dor Dai" in the singular.


Our systematic theological methodology:


Jewish practice and doctrinal theology stem solely from:
The Written Torah (5 books of Moses)
The Oral Torah: The Rulings of the Great Court (as codified in the Mishneh Torah of Rambam)

All other works including the books of the prophets and the writings (biblical and contemporary) exist only to reinforce the Written and Oral Torah. (No doctrine should be formulated from other books, nor do other books have the authority to alter or negate laws or theological concepts that appear in either the Written and Oral Torah.)


Restrictions within both the Written and Oral Law:

 

Written

 

All Doctrinal beliefs stem ONLY from the simple ethically contextual understanding found within the pages of Torah.
All practical instructional beliefs stem ONLY from the literal laws commanded in these books.


Oral


Concepts conveyed within the Oral Torah source texts that do not concern practical implementation of a law have the status of commentary when determining instructional doctrine.
