Oral Law: Seeing Sound versus Hearing Sights: What is it - How is it - and Why?
The crucial role of the Oral Law in the miraculous preservation of the Jewish People
When Hashem spoke to the Jewish People at Sinai the Torah tells us that the entire nation "רואים את הקולות - saw the sounds" - a seemingly enigmatic phrase. What does it mean - and why is it so important?
In addition, central to Judaism is the "Oral Law" - what exactly is it, why was it important for it NOT to written in the Torah, and how are we so sure it was handed down correctly? And - why was it subsequently written down in the Gemara?
AND - what do those two points have to do with each other!!
This shiur (recorded live) will add depth and insight to how we understand or know anything - and the role of Torah study in our personal growth and integrity.
