THE MEANING OF LIFE
Being Jewish means more than just being carried along by the social and traditional forces that envelop and propel us. It means choosing one’s own path in life. To do this, we must try to understand the purpose of our existence. Why are we here? What are we supposed to achieve with our lives?
The answers to these Big Questions are found by probing the foundational text of Western Civilization: the Torah. The answer to “Why can we eat a grasshopper but not a hare?” helps explain why mankind exists on this earth!
We are meant to ask hard questions and demand good answers. The Torah Manifesto shows that when we do that, we discover that the Torah itself is a living guide to life in the present and a guide to the meaning of life, here and now.
