Today’s Learning

Pirkei Avot 6:6 tells us: Greater is learning Torah than the priesthood and than royalty, for royalty is acquired by thirty stages, and the priesthood by twenty-four, but the Torah by forty-eight things.

From our community:

The most illuminating book I’ve read about the Old Testament is Richard Elliott Friedman’s Who Wrote the Bible? Friedman sums up and adds to the centuries of research on this crucial question, providing his own clear and persuasive conclusions. He offers a sensitive study of the Bible’s language and always in context, consistently showing connections between the OT’s stylistic traits and the Israelites’ social and political history.
Spoiler Alert: It wasn’t Moses.
