Torah! Torah! Torah!


There is only one way to truly study Torah and the rest of the Bible, the Tanach: word by word, verse by verse. We need to see for ourselves what our sacred texts have to say, rather than accept what others told us they say. Take Creation in Genesis Chapter 1. The only myth in that chapter is what people say it says. Read it carefully, though, and what appears before us is the story of how the universe, and the Earth after it, came into being just as science says they did. Our views of the Torah are colored by the things we are told about it, by the movies and films that seek to dramatize it, and even how Torah is misused and abused by the politics of our day. You will be surprised to discover what the Bible (the Tanach), the Torah especially, really do have to say.
