An accessible introduction to how to read, study, and understand Torah-the Bible and related sacred texts that have grown up around it.
For everyone who wants to understand Torah, this book shows the way into an essential aspect of Judaism, and allows you to interact directly with the sacred texts of the Jewish tradition.
Guided by Dr. Norman J. Cohen, rabbi and professor of midrash at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, The Way Into Torah helps us explore the origins and development of Torah, why it should be studied, and how to do it.
This guide offers an entrance into the world of Torah, and to its meaning for our lives. The Way Into Torah shows us why reading Torah is not the same as reading anything else-and enables us to become a part of a chain of Jewish tradition that began millennia ago, and remains unbroken today.
"Accessible and basic, yet sophisticated and wise."
