About Torah

Deep in the heart of a synagogue, a Rabbi pours over a weathered scroll, studying it in order to provide insight to his congregation that he will be meeting within a few hours. Luckily, you do not need to be a Rabbi to study the Torah, especially with the ability to buy an English Torah, or one in whatever language comes most naturally to you. The Torah is the first five books of the Tanakh, known to most English speakers as the Old Testament. Written entirely by Moses, the Torah plays a profound role in the Jewish tradition, as well as in Islam and Christianity. Including Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, the Torah contains many famous stories, such as the Garden of Eden, the Great Flood, the Tower of Babel, the Exodus, the 10 Commandments, as well as the stories of the patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You can find a Torah, or even a Torah scroll, on eBay, available from reliable sellers. If you wish to know the Jewish tradition in a deeper way, the Torah is a wise place to start.
