                                  Answer:
   
   Traditional Sephardic and Ashkenazic Jews agree that the oral and
   written Torah are from G-d, and that the sages may rule on halachic
   matters. The differences in practice are mostly in culture and
   customs. Traditional and liberal Jews disagree on the Divine origin of
   the oral and written Torah, and on the ability of present-day sages
   and secular scholars to overrule earlier halachic decisors.
   
   Also, Sephardic Jews tend not to separate along "denominational"
   lines, but rather "observant" and "non-observant."
