Nehemiah Gordon

Nehemia Gordon (1972 –) is a Karaite Jew. He was born to a Jewish family of rabbis. He rejected the idea that the Talmud has divine authority and became a Karaite. Nehemia is a native of Chicago but has lived in Jerusalem, Israel since making Aliyah in 1993.

Until recently Gordon served on Universal Karaite Judaism's "Religious Council" (which is the lower religious council in the Karaite Organization), and on the Board of Directors of the ancient Karaite synagogue in Jerusalem. He is also a co-founder of the World Karaite Movement, a Karaite revival group. He coordinates Karaite Jewish University.

Gordon holds a Master's degree in Biblical Studies from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He assisted in the translation of texts contained in The Dead Sea Scrolls Reader, was an assistant on the Dead Sea Scrolls Publication project coordinated by Emanuel Tov, and worked as a researcher on the Hebrew University Bible Project under the auspices of Shemaryahu Talmon.

Gordon was a guest on Karaite Judaism included a feature about Gordon.
