HOLY BOOKS – THE TORAH
For Jewish people their scriptures are very important. The first five books of the Hebrew scriptures are called the Torah, sometimes it is called the Books of Moses, as Jewish people believe that God dictated the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. The Torah shows how God wants the Jewish people to live. The Sefer Torah, or Torah scrolls are treated with great reference and respect.
