Rabbi Emanuel Feldman, in his book "On Judaism" (Shaar Press), beautifully explains the importance of Torah study.

    Judaism (jōō´dəĬz´əm, jōō´dē–), the religious beliefs and practices and the way of life of the term itself was first used by Hellenized Jews to describe their religious practice, but it is of predominantly modern usage; it is not used in the Bible or in Rabbinic literature and only rarely in the literature of .   Start slow.

The study of Bible and midrash was, for many centuries, viewed as the domain of women, and not the province of the exclusively male yeshiva.

Today, as the boundaries of Jewish knowledge have expanded, and as both women and men have gained greater access to the areas previously assigned to the other, the parameters of Torah study have expanded. The sacred book of Judaism is called the Torah. The Torah makes up the first five books of the Tanakh which has 24 books in total.

The word Torah has. See full answer below.

In the past, students have spent a year or semester studying Rabbinic texts at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem and Mechon Hadar in New York City. External study is not credited toward UVA requirements.

However, Judaism appears to be flourishing, it would help to understand why Jews did not lose their faith in God. Federow appears to believe that the Old Testament is literally true.

He does not really explain how a literal interpretation of the Bible can be reconciled with our knowledge of science and history/5(82). The other Holy Book for the Jewish religion is the Talmud which includes the Mishnah, which means "repetition" or "study" and the Gemara, which means "addition" or "completion." As society changed, the Jews found that the Torah needed to be updated from its original agricultural emphasis.

Those changes became part of the Mishnah.

Leviticus, Vayikra, challenges our modern social mores, promotes a ritualism that is often out of sync with modernity, and obsesses about tribal delineations that should be meaningless in today's Judaism. And yet, there are passages in Leviticus that promote ethical and holy behavior that guide us still to higher spiritual planes.
