Transcript of Jewish Traditions: The Torah and Talmud

Scott Bisaillon, Adam Lachance, Adam Faiz, Jon Christie The Torah and Talmud The Torah The Talmud The first five books of the Hebrew bible. More information/lore on the Torah It was meant for all of mankind, but every nation but Israel refused it. In Rabbinic literature, it was thought to be one of the six or seven things that was created before the creation of the world. But older Jewish sages disregarded this notion and believed it was a thought, not an object. It was thought that Moses ascended into heaven to capture the Torah from the angels. Accoriding to Eleazar Ben Shammua, were it not for the Torah, heaven and Earth would cease to exist. Considered the source of freedom, goodness, and life. Other names: "Torah of the Lord," "Torah of Moses" The book itself spells out Jewish law, in particular the Ten Commandments. Of the Ten Commandments as stated in the Torah, some of them are "demanded by reason" (murder, theft) while others have pertain to personal and social benefit (Sabbath and dietary laws). Orthodox Judaism is the only variant of the Jewish faith that still follows the Talmud. Reform Judaism does not emphasize the study of the Talmud. The same is applicable to Hebrew schools. Over time, it became the basis for Rabbinic codes and customs. When training to be Rabbis, one trains by the laws of the Talmud. Conservative Judaism believes that the Talmud is the complete authority of Jewish law. Also called the six orders of the Oral Law of Judaism. It is the second part of the Jewish bible, but it has fallen out of use as one of the main teachings in Judaism. It has two main components; the Mishnah, and the Gemara. By non-Jews, it's known as the Old Testament. The book has been compared to fire, water, wine, oil, milk, honey, drugs, manna, and the tree of life.
