Quote of the week
Write this song for yourselves and teach it to the Children of Israel, and place it in their mouths (Deut. 31:19). Torah is not a catechism or a body of dry legislation to be learnt by heart. It is a veritable 'song,' a joyful celebration of the fact that God 'chose us from among all other peoples to grant us His law.' The manner in which we leyen the Torah, to a lively and joyful melody (nigun or trop), reflects the spirit of that divine instruction.
(Rabbi Dr Jeffrey M Cohen)
