Have you ever questioned the authenticity of our Jewish tradition?

Is there any evidence supporting the veracity of Judaism as we practice it today?

What was invented by the rabbis, and what can be traced back to ancient biblical verses?

And how do contemporary rabbis know how to adapt biblical law for modern times?

Just as science follows the scientific method, Jewish tradition has its own system to ensure its authenticity remains intact.

Judaism Decoded sheds light on the mysteries surrounding biblical interpretation. How do we know our interpretation is true? If it is true, why is it subject to differences of opinion? And with so many interpretations to choose from, how do we know which one reflects its original intent?

Discover the sheer elegance of the “source code” on which Torah law is built; enjoy the razor-sharp reasoning, intelligent debate, and compelling arguments of the Talmudic dialectic; and get a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse of the most intellectually sophisticated religion in existence.
