   112, [1], 172 pp., 183:115 mm., wide margins, light age staining. A very good copy bound in modern cloth boards.
   Year roud prayer book for Karaites. Karaism is a Jewish sectarian movement founded by Anan ben David (c. 760) It is characterized by its denial of the validity of the Oral Law, expressed in the Talmud, and its reliance on the Bible only as a source of Divine revelation. When interpreting scripture Karaites strive to adhere to the plain meaning of the text, in contrast to Rabbinical Judiasm, which employs the methods of p'shat, remez (implication or clue), drash ("deep interpretation," based on changing the meaning of the words and the way they are read to another meaning) and sod ("secret," the Kabbalistic meaning of the text). There are approximately 50,000 adherents to Karaite Judaism, most of whom reside in Israel. Karaite Judaism is in a period of growth and renewal in the USA. However, exact numbers are not known, as most Karaites have not participated in any religious censuses.
