Within Judaism there are a variety of movements, most of which emerged from Rabbinic Judaism, which holds that God revealed his laws and commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of both the Written and Oral Torah.
Unfortunately, what I usually hear is a mix of Ashkenazic and Sephardic pronunciations.
I have tried to present the Sephardic pronunciation as much as possible, but some things I never hear pronounced that way!
The Talmud was written that the Jewish rabbis claim was handed down from Moses.
But the Messiah Jesus censored the “Oral Law” when He said, “By the traditions of your elders you make void the Word of God.” (St Matthew 15).
