Ultimate Reality and Divine Beings

Written by:

Orthodox Jews believe that God can only be known through the word, namely the Torah. In the absence of prophetic voices and Temple rituals, whose restoration are contingent on the arrival of the Messiah, deep study of the canonical texts of Judaism, including the Talmud, is believed to be the closest humans can get to communing with the divine.
