All Jews have the same Torah.
Orthodox Jews believe that the Torah must be fully observed (Deuteronomy 13:5). They keep the laws of Judaism as codified in the Shulchan Arukh (Code of Jewish Law), which lists the laws of the Torah and Talmud. Torah-study is seen as very important (Deuteronomy 5:1); and the modern world is seen as subservient to the Torah (Talmud, Nedarim 32a), not the other way around.
Other Jewish groups (Conservative, Reform) adapt, curtail or change the Torah-laws in contemporary life, to a greater or lesser degree.

Orthodox is the most traditional. Reform is the largest. But there is no one denomination that can be called "the main sect". All of the denominations of Judaism are tied together (despite the opinions of some). For example, Reform Jews who keep kosher depend on Orthodox butchers. Orthodox communities within large Reform communities must interact with Reform Jews in community based situations such as local Jewish newspapers and some events.
