TORAH STUDY LESSONS. Introduction

A series of 15 lessons which cover important topics such as how to know God's will for our lives, faith, hope, why God allows suffering, what happens when we die, and much much more. Go to Lesson 1.

Torah Study Lesson 1. ABRAHAM (Avraham)

Welcome to the first lesson of the Jewish Heritage Scripture Studies. Each lesson in the series builds on the one before it and will help us grow in our knowledge of and love for God.

Torah Study Lesson 2. JACOB (Ya’akov)

We often say the phrase “the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” In the last lesson we learned about Abraham and Isaac, but who is Jacob and what role did he play in establishing the nation of Israel?

Torah Study Lesson 7. MOSES AND THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

When the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness they lived in tents. Today we have steel doors and bolt locks. Why is that? Well, you say, it’s because of the increase in crime.

Torah Study Lesson 8. MOSES THE TORAH WRITER

God’s Word has a solution for every situation in life. In past lessons we saw how Abraham was able to live a life of faith through God’s power, how Jacob was able to repent and be humbly sorry for his mistakes, and how Joseph was able to forgive those who had deeply hurt him.

Torah Study Lesson 9. WHY DOES GOD ALLOW SUFFERING?

In Yiddish we have many ways to express sorrow. We have words like tzuris, oy vey, oy vey is mir, oy gevalt, oy gottenyu, and even just a plain oy. Have you ever stopped to think of why we have so many sayings to express our grief?

Torah Study Lesson 10. DEBORAH – A MOTHER IN ISRAEL

Just before our forefathers, the children of Israel, entered the Promised Land Moses died on Mt. Nebo. The leadership of the nation was passed on to Joshua.

Torah Study Lesson 12. KING SOLOMON

King Solomon’s life clearly shows us God’s mercy and God’s willingness to work all things for good concerning us. God can cause the most horrible situation to end up blessing those who love God.

Torah Study Lesson 13. JONAH THE FISHERMAN

Jonah was not exactly a fisherman; he was more like the bait. He did not catch the fish but the fish caught him. Yet his experience teaches us a great lesson.

Torah Study Lesson 14. THE YOUNGEST KING

Stop and visualize a seven-year-old child you know. Maybe he’s a child of yours, a niece, nephew, or grandchild. Now try to imagine that child being the current Prime Minister of Israel or as the President of your country.
