    Read this book slowly, make sure you understand the information he is speaking about. He also has an audio series on his website which goes through the book and is well worth it as well.

    This is a book about Emunah, belief in the Almighty, and a fascinating discussion of the oral torah, passed down from generation to generation. The author does a really nice “laying down the facts” to bring us to the conclusion of how the torah that is oral is part-and-parcel of the written torah, and why orthodox jews have “the real thing.” a very interesting book. I haven’t yet read Rabbi Sapirmans other book, but this book stands on its own and explains the arguments and history. If you are jewish or in general, a seeker of truth, I suggest this.

  3. Israel Drazin

    I described Rabbi Dovid Sapirman’s views and that of other Haredi Jews about the origin of Jewish law in my review of his book “Emunah.” I will not repeat it here. I recommend that readers read that review. However, very briefly stated Haredi, that is fundamentalist Jews, believe, that not only did God give the Five Books of Moses, the Torah, to the Israelites while they stood at Mount Sinai, God also gave the Israelites what came to be called the “Oral Torah.” Haredi Jews understand the “Oral Torah” to be how God wanted the Torah to be understood. These “explanations” were not written down until the days when Jews wrote Midrashim, Mishnah, and Talmud, close to two thousand years after Sinai.
    In this book, Rabbi Sapirman explains his views on how the extensive oral explanations were passed down from the time of Moses until much was written down. How could all of this information – such as what work is forbidden on the Shabbat, what work is prohibited on holidays, that “a sign upon your hand” means tefillin, and a multitude of other details – be memorized, how did different views on what the laws required develop, and many other questions that evolve from the understanding that God told Moses how to interpret Torah orally.

    Great for the first time as well as easy to use for reference.
