Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Do you agree that this is the main message of the Torah?

2. If the message of the Hebrew Bible is so simple, what causes such disparate opinions among Jews and non-Jews alike?

3. Who do you serve for - people, God or both? Why?

4. Is this split common in the modern day? Why do you think that is?
