We have realized that Dr. Chigel is the coolest rabbi I've met so far. The funniest moment among all videos I think is when we notice that there's not just one Talmud (laughter) and the rabbi conclud "There's not enough hours in the day! A similar feeling when I studied History at College! For us who are getting close to Judaism in order to convert, we feel there's not enough life to get through Jewish Literature... My main goal while walking G-ds path is ask for SEKINAH every single day. Reply

So if we are on board with HaShem giving Moses the Torah at Sinai and we are on board with the Oral Tradition also being given then and then written down by Rabbis---with much debate---, is the writing down and debating period over or still continuing?? Reply
