Scholars Engage with “Torah of Truth”

I learned tonight about a marvelous study resource online that I’d like to share with you. Torah.com has organized a symposium of 25 major Torah scholars to write meditations on “Torat Emet” [Torah of Truth].  Their articles on the subject are available online for all of us to read.

I have only begun to delve into the articles myself, but the introduction is well worth your time. I decided to rush ahead and share it because this is a time of year when many Jews are looking for serious reading as we prepare for the High Holy Days.

The scholars grapple with the notion of truth, of being a “Torah true Jew,” and of the problems an ancient text can present to a modern reader. There are many ways to read Torah, and it is difficult for all of us. Still, the rewards are mighty.

Enjoy.

  1. I have been on that site numerous times but I hadn’t even seen this section! Thanks for pointing it out to us. I am sure I will be spending a copious amount time reading through the articles.
