“Talmud Torah K’neged Kulam” – the study of Torah is equivalent to all the other mitzvot
Torah study in our tradition refers not only to Torah (the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Five Books of Moses); it refers also to all the rabbinic and midrashic texts, commentaries, and other teachings that have been written from the time of the Torah until today.
Ever wonder about the prayers in our Shabbat service? Join Rabbi Sherman on Friday nights to study our Shabbat liturgy.
