Dear Mrs. Kohn:



Apparently I was wrong when I thought the Old Testament was the same as the Torah. Can you please clarify the difference?
Thank You,
Marilyn

Dear Marilyn:

Thank you for your email inquiry re. Old Testament vs Torah. The word "Torah", in its literal sense, refers to the 5 Books given to Moses at Mount Sinai (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy), often called the "Chumash". The word "Torah" is also used in its broadest sense to describe all of Jewish wisdom. For a good English translation of the Chumash see the "Stone Chumash" published by Artscroll.
Best Regards,
Leah Kohn
