The Deeper Value of Talmud Torah

By Michael Rosenberg

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2005

The author argues that while history is an important axis on which to consider Judaism, viewing it as our primary way of interacting with the Jewish narrative entails many problems. He explains why the new locus of Jewish identity must not be an historical event or a political entity, but rather, the value of Talmud Torah.
