WHAT DOES WRITTEN LAW MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Written Law

Torah

Torah, or what is often translated into English as Pentateuch, is the central concept in the Judaic tradition. It has a range of meanings: it can most specifically mean the first five books of the twenty four books of the Tanakh, it usually includes the rabbinic commentaries in it, The term Torah means instruction and offers a way of life for those who follow it. It can mean the continued narrative from Genesis to the end of the Tanakh, and it can even mean the totality of Jewish teaching, culture and practice. Common to all these meanings, Torah consists of the foundational narrative of the Jewish people: their call into being by God, their trials and tribulations, and their covenant with their God, which involves following a way of life embodied in a set of religious obligations and civil laws. In rabbinic literature the word "Torah" denotes both the five books, Torah Shebichtav, and an Oral Torah, Torah Shebe'al Peh. The Oral Torah consists of interpretations and amplifications which according to rabbinic tradition have been handed down from generation to generation and are now embodied in the Talmud and Midrash.
