Monday: Reform Voices of Torah is an interpretation of the weekly parashah (Torah portion) by a Reform Jewish leader who commits to pen the commentary for an entire book of Torah. At this time, we do not accept open submissions for Reform Voices of Torah, although individual essays on the weekly parashah may be submitted as blog posts.
Followers of Orthodox Judaism view the Torah as an authoritative text. It was given to Moses by God, and its precepts were meant to be followed strictly. The Torah itself is considered a holy scripture, as is the traditional interpretation of its laws. For Orthodox Jews today, that means following the original rituals established centuries ago.
