(8) The teaching of the LORD is perfect, renewing life; the decrees of the LORD are enduring, making the simple wise;

What does the Book of Psalms say about the Torah?

Psalm 19:8

"The Torah of Hashem is perfect,

restoring the soul;

The testimony of Hashem is trustworthy,

making wise the simple..."

The first seven sentences of Psalm 19 correspond to the 7 days of creation. Passage 8 describes beautiful things about the Torah. This teaches that when we want to reach higher, we reach for the Torah. When we wish to elevate our spiritual awareness we reach for the Torah.

Yet when we celebrate the receiving of the Torah at Mount Sinai, rather than go into meditative seclusion, we celebrate by sharing a festive dairy meal with friends and family. We stay up all night and discuss the Book of Ruth and the Ten Commandments.

Thus, the Torah teaches us about our mission on this earth - not merely to enlighten ourselves spiritually in solitude, but to bring the physical in - to bring holiness into all aspects of life, spiritual and physical.”
