What is Torah?
Torah usually refers to the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible - Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. These books make up the story of the Jewish people.
These ancient stories touch upon science, history, philosophy, ritual and ethics. Included are stories of individuals, families, wars, slavery and more. Virtually no subject was taboo for Torah.
Running through these stories is the unique lens through which the Jewish people would come to view their world and their God.
