Sephardic 2. Chabad 3. Orthodox (Modern) 4. Reform 5. Conservative 6. Reconstructionist 7. Renewal 8. Humanist 9. Independent 10. Kabbalah
Answer
The only branch of Judaism that has not added nor subtracted from the word of G-d is 'Orthodox'. Within Orthodox there are a number of sects, all of them are 'kosher'. These include Chabad, Modern Orthodox, Chassidic. Divisions such as Sephardic or Ashkenazic have to do with geographical backgrounds only. Best of luck Rabbi Baruch Kitay
