Sacred Texts

Written by:

Aside from the Torah, whose full and exact text is believed by Orthodox Jews to have been revealed directly to Moses by God and transmitted intact through the generations, Orthodoxy has a large body of authoritative rabbinical texts—most importantly the Talmud and the 16th-century legal code, Shulchan Aruch.
