Deuteronomy 6:6,7 And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be in your heart and you shall impress them upon your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.

Welcome to

Beit Shamesh

the house of the servant

The following writing has been prepared by Yehuda Wiessen as a guide for Conservative Jews to have a better understanding of Halacha, Jewish Law.

This is posted only for reference to give the reader a better understanding of Jewish Laws and traditions. While some of these 'Laws' are based on

Scripture many are not. Be reminded of the Scriptural instruction, Deuteronomy 12:32 See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.

While the Jewish community will say that some of these 'laws' are part of the written Torah, they define the others as part of the Oral Torah which is not Scriptural.

Clearly the Scripture has been added to by declaring these laws as the Word of God. Visit the Torah page for more on this subject.


He is YHWH my Elohim, He has brought me out of the house of sin. I will not put any mighty ones in YHWH's face. I will not make any images or idols and bow down to them. I will not bring the Name of YHWH to naught. I will remember the Sabbath and set it apart.  I will honor my father and mother. I will not murder. I will not commit adultery. I will not steal. I will not bear false witness. I will not covet.
