I am a Karaite Jew, born to an Egyptian Karaite Jewish family. I have been very involved in Jewish education - having taught Hebrew school at a conservative Rabbanite Synagogue in San Diego; Jewish Communal issues - having served on the board of the directors of BBYO, Inc.; and Karaite Judaism - having founded the Karaite Jewish University and co-authored a book on Karaite Judaism (As it is Written).
I have also spoken to several audiences (including the Library of Congress and the Association of Jewish Libraries) about Karaite Judaism.
I'm actually here just to learn more about Rabbanite Judaism and offer insights from a Karaite Jew where it seems fitting.
