In this series of 24 30-minute lectures on 12 Discs, Professor Shai Cherry explores the rich religious heritage of Judaism from biblical times to today. He introduces you to the written Torah, and you learn more about the oral Torah, called Mishnah, and its documentary, the Gemara, and how both comprise the Talmud. He teaches you about the three Pillars of the world defined more than 2,000 years ago by Shimon the righteous: Torah, worship, and deeds of loving kindness. Professor Cherry takes you through the calendar of Jewish holidays, explains how Jews and Christians understand the Bible very differently, and addresses complex issues such as the problem of evil and suffering.
