Torah (תּוֹרָה): Although Judaism has both a Written Torah and an Oral Torah, the term "Torah," meaning "to guide/teach" is used across the board to refer to the first five books of the greater Jewish canon known as Tanakh, which is an acronym for Torah, Nevi'im (prophets), and Ketuvim (writings).Author: Ariela Pelaia.

The Torah is the holy book of the Jewish people. It is a narrative about the way in which they were called to witness the word of God, their trials and the teachings about the way in which they should live their lives so as to please the Lord/10(48).

In their simplest form, the twenty-four books of the Jewish Bible – the Tanach – present a history of the first years from creation until the building of the second Temple in Jerusalem.
