The translation of the Biblical portions presented here are in general based on the King James Version with slight modifications. The divine name (YHVH), which the King James inaccurately translated as "LORD" (in capital letters), has been replaced with the Hebrew "YHWH", representing the original Hebrew Yod-He-Vav-He, the divine name of God. Non-Biblical portions were translated by Nehemia Gordon and are marked at the end of each passage as "(NB)", that is "Non-Biblical". The non-Biblical sections have been bolded so as to distinguish them. In a number of instances the verse numbers in the English Bible are off by one or more from the verse numbers in the Hebrew. This usually takes place when the English Bible fails to count short sentences. When such a difference takes place the English Bible verse numbers are marked in square brackets.

Karaism is the original form of Judaism as prescribed by God in the Torah. Karaite Judaism rejects later additions to the Tanach (Jewish Bible) such as the Rabbinic Oral Law and places the ultimate responsibility of interpreting the Bible on each individual. Karaism does not reject Biblical interpretation but rather holds every interpretation up to the same objective scrutiny regardless of its source.

During the nineteenth century, two editions of the Humash (Pentateuch) were printed in the same part of the world at about the same time. One is a splendid edition of the Five Books of Moses in Hebrew with a Turkish Tatar translation in parallel columns, published by the Karaite The Karaites B'nai Mikra (Children of Scripture), are a Jewish sect which had its beginnings in the eighth century. The sect's chief characteristic is that it accepts the authority of the Bible but rejects the Talmudic rabbinic tradition. At its beginnings, Karaism constituted a serious challenge to traditional rabbinic Judaism, but as time went on its attraction receded. its numbers remained small, concentrated in a few centers in Egypt, Turkey, Syria, the Crimea, and Lithuania. If the main body of Jews and the Karaites differed in matters of faith, they shared a common fate, until the incorporation of the Crimea and Lithuania into the Russian Empire at the end of the eighteenth century, when the situation began to change. In 1795, the Empress Catherine 11 permitted the Karaites to purchase land and relieved them of the double taxation imposed upon other Jews. In 1827, Karaites were exempted from the dreaded military draft, which plucked Jewish children from their families for twenty-five years and more of distant military service. It was obvious to the Karaites that it would be to their advantage to distance themselves as far as possible from other Jews. In memoranda to the Czarist government the

Friday December 10, 1999 Israel's 30,000 Karaites follow Bible, not Talmud NECHEMIA MEYERS
Bulletin Correspondent REHOVOT, ISRAEL Israel today is home to some 30,000 Karaites who are Jews, but Jews with a difference. They are followers of a movement that broke away from mainstream Judaism in eighth-century Babylonia, and retained its separate identity and customs to this day. Israel's Karaites don't look any different from other Israeli Jews. Moreover, they attend the same schools, hold the same kind of jobs and serve in the same military units. But in one significant respect they are different: While the religious life of other Jews is governed primarily by the oral law, as embodied in the Talmud, the Karaites reject the Talmud. More than 1,000 Karaites live in the Bay Area, where many worship at the Karaite Jews of America's congregation in Daly City, led by Rav Joe Pessah. Founding members are from Egypt, and fled from Cairo after the Six-Day War in 1967. For them, only the Bible counts. That makes the Karaite form of Judaism more restrictive in some respects, less so in others.

The Karaites ( qara'im , or benei miqra ) take their name from the Hebrew word for Scripture. The sect's scripturalism originated in its rejection of the 'Oral Law' embodied in rabbinic literature. Like earlier scripturalist groups - notably the Sadducees - Karaites sought to derive their practices directly from the biblical text. While Karaism is usually traced to mid-eighth-century Iraq, the early history remains murky. The sect crystallized in the Islamic East during the late ninth and early tenth centuries, calling forth stern reactions from the leaders of mainstream rabbinic Judaism. Although harsh at times, the ensuing polemics stimulated both Karaite and Rabbanite scholarship in the fields of biblical exegesis, Hebrew grammar and lexicography, jurisprudence and religious philosophy. The two groups differed sharply over points of law and practice - the calendar, dietary laws, Sabbath regulations - but typically concurred on questions of theology.

    Introduction: The Makings of a Jewish Schism
    Who are the Samaritans and the Karaites? The Samaritans claim descent from the biblical Israelites of the Northern Kingdom in Samaria, while the Jews trace their origins to Judeans of the Southern Kingdom who were exiled to Babylonia. The Samaritans furthermore accept only the first five books of the Hebrew Bible, the Torah, as their sacred text. The Karaites accept all twenty-four books of the Hebrew Bible, and in this they agree with the Jews. But ever since their origins in eighth-century Iraq, they have rejected rabbinic law as expressed in the Talmud. They maintain instead that the Bible is the sole authentic source of Jewish law. The Samaritans and the Karaites do not have much in common beyond their special relationship to Scripture. While the two groups had some limited contact and even influence on each other during the Middle Ages, their histories have taken completely different paths. The Samaritans have always lived within pilgimage distance of their place of worship, Mount Gerizim, near Shechem in Samaria. Although during ancient and medieval times, Samaritans lived as far away from Mount Gerizim as Cairo, Damascus, and the Greek isles, the Samaritan diaspora rarely rivaled the Shechem community in religious and cultural importance.

    13. Karaites In Derazne
    A poetic narrative about destruction of the community, and a seemingly very thorough site.
    SUMMARY Karaites in Derazne: a poetic narrative about destruction of the community " by M. Nosonovsky (USA), V. Shabarovsky (Ukraine). A history of the Karaite (Karaim) community in Derazne (modern Derazhno of Rivne region in Ukraine) is considered and a poem by a Karaite scholar Joseph ben Yeshu'a about a destruction of the community by Cossacks in 1649 is presented. A location of the community is analyzed, since some literature sources erroneously identify Derazhne with Derazhnia in Podolia (Khmelnitsky region of Ukraine), while the correct location is in Volhyn ("Derazhno" in Ukrainian or "Derazhnoe" in Russian). The community existed since the late 1500s and was among the most important Karaite centers in Poland in the 1640s. Several scholars lived or were born there (Joseph b. Yeshu'a, Joseph b. Samuael ha-Mashbir, Moses-Levy b. Simkha). The community is mentioned in several Karaite documents in Hebrew originating from Poland and the Middle East, which were preserved in the Firkovich collection of MSs in St.Petertsburg. In 1649 the community was destroyed by Chmielnicki's rebels. Karaites who fled Derazne settled in Luck and other places, their descendants visited Derazne's Karaite cemetery every year during the Days of Repentance until approximately 1890. There are some evidences of Karaite presence in Derazne later until the Haidamaks uprising in 1768, but no signs that the community was of any importance after 1649 were found.

    Memories of a momentous find
    It is now almost exactly a century since Solomon Schechter's Scottish friends in Cambridge, Mrs Agnes Lewis and Mrs Margaret Gibson, showed him a manuscript folio that ultimately led him to the Ben Ezra Synagogue in Cairo, and to the massive haul of Genizah fragments that he brought back to Cambridge. Schechter was able to identify the folio as a Hebrew text of Ben Sira (Ecclesiasticus), the wisdom book written in the 2nd pre-Christian century and copied in 10th-century Cairo. During the period from the initial discovery until the official presentation of the Taylor-Schechter Collection to the University of Cambridge in October, 1898, various noteworthy events took place. These will be commemorated in the relevant issues of Genizah Fragments between now and 1998 by transcriptions and reproductions of original documents. The series begins with an extract from Mrs Lewis's description of developments in the spring of 1896, as related in her volume, In the Shadow of Sinai (1895-1897) (Cambridge, 1898), pp.168-80:

    19. Karaite Korner - Hag Ha-Sukkot (Booths/ Succos/ Tabernacles)
    karaite interpretation of Sukkot
    Hag Ha-Sukkot
    On Sukkot (Succos/ Tabernacles) we are commanded to build a Sukkah (Booths) using as building materials the "4 species" listed in Lev 23,40, which the Rabbanites claim are to be carried as a bundle.

    The Torah commands us to celebrate the Feast of Booths (Hag HaSukkot) for 7 days, from the 15th to the 21st of the Seventh month (Tishrei). This holiday is also known as "Succos" and the "Feast of Tabernacles". Work is forbidden on the 1st day of the seven days. Sukkoth is one of the three "Pilgrimage Festivals" which means every Jewish male is required to come to Jerusalem during this 7 day period. Most laws in the Torah apply to both males and females, however, the Pilgrimage law refers specifically to males. Both males and females are required to dwell in a Sukkah (Booth) for all 7 days of the Festival whether at home or in Jerusalem. Building a Sukkah The Torah requires that we build a Sukka on Hag HaSukkot but does not say how many walls it must have or describe it beyond saying what materials it must be made out of (see below). This means that a Succa does not have to comply to any of the fictitious Rabbinite specifications laid out in Massekhet Succot and other Rabbinic literature. The Torah commands in Leviticus 23,40 that we "take" on the first day of Hag HaSuccot "fruit of a splendorous tree [or, a splendorous fruit tree], date branches, the branch of a thick tree and willows of the creek". Upon first reading this it is not immediately clear what to do with these branches and reeds. The Rabbis claim that one is supposed to make these plants into a bundle which is waved during the prayer service. However, this is not said anywhere in the Tanach. On the contrary, in the Biblical book of Nehemiah (ch.8) we are told of a national gathering in which the Torah is read to the people and they rediscover what is commanded in it. We are told in verses 14-16:
