Halakha and Observance

The position of 13 Petals is that we encourage people to seek to become more observant, recognizing that our readers come from many different backgrounds, many with little or no knowledge of such matters. This section will include everything from basic ideas and practices for those starting out as well as deeper-level discussions on more traditional topics.
