Description about HEBREW BIBLE
Torah, Hebrew for “instruction,” generally refers to the Hebrew Bible or, more specifically, the Five Books of Moses. Through its commandments and powerful stories of the lives of our forefathers and foremothers, the Torah is God’s instruction book for how to live a life of holiness. The numerical value of the word Torah is 611, just two shy of the number of commandments in the entire Torah, 613. The sages explain the discrepancy by distinguishing between the first two of the Ten Commandments, which God spoke directly to the Israelites at Mount Sinai, and the other 611 commandments, which were heard exclusively by Moses, who then wrote them in the Torah and taught them to the nation. According to Jewish tradition, there is both a Written Torah and an Oral Torah. The Written Torah comprises the text of the Five Books of Moses, while the Oral Torah is a collection of teachings that God gave to Moses that explain and elucidate the commandments and stories of the Written Torah. Without these oral teachings, the Written Torah would be incomplete and unclear. After the destruction of the Second Temple and the dispersion of the Jewish people throughout the world, the Oral Torah was put into writing because the sages were concerned that its teachings would be forgotten and lost. Much of the Oral Torah was written in the books of the Mishnah and Talmud, the most important Jewish texts after the Hebrew Bible itself. The Hebrew words for “teacher” and “parent” are moreh and horeh, two words that are linguistically related to the word Torah, for teachers and parents instruct their students and children in the ways of holiness, just as the Torah does for Israel and for all of humanity.
