The Torah – G-d’s Wisdom, for Every Jew

In ancient Egypt, the study of wisdom was limited to an intellectual elite – the sorcerers and astrologers. Ordinary people had no independent access to wisdom. When the Jews left Egypt, however, G-d commanded them to journey to Sinai and receive the Torah. G-d revealed the Ten Commandments, which included the entire Torah, directly to three million Jewish men, women and children together.

In ancient Egypt, the study of wisdom was limited to an intellectual elite – the sorcerers and astrologers. Ordinary people had no independent access to wisdom. When the Jews left Egypt, however, G-d commanded them to journey to Sinai and receive the Torah. G-d revealed the Ten Commandments, which included the entire Torah, directly to three million Jewish men, women and children together.

Furthermore, Torah study became a primary Mitzvah even for ordinary people. It is incumbent on every Jew to study Torah every single day, whether he is a great scholar or of smaller intellectual means. Every Jew must meditate into the wisdom of Torah through which he will attain love and awe of G-d.
