A Torah scroll in the British Museum, open at Exodus

Torah (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.) is a Hebrew word that means "instructions". When most people say the word Torah they either mean the whole Jewish Bible, the Tanakh, the first five books of the Bible, or all of the Jewish teaching in general.

These five books are the beginning of both the Jewish and Christian bibles.

The five books are:

  1. Genesis (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.),
  2. Exodus (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.),
  3. Leviticus (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.),
  4. Numbers (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.) and
  5. Deuteronomy (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Language/data/iana scripts' not found.).

Other names for this set of books are the "Five Books of Moses," or "Pentateuch" (a Greek word)

Some people may use the word Torah as a name for all the main Jewish teachings.

Each of the books in the Torah are separated into parts called "Parshiyot." Parsha is a Hebrew word meaning "portion." Every Shabbat one parsha is read in the synagogue, but sometimes two are read. This is so that all the parshiyot are finished every year, on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah.
