The Torah could rightly be called a record of the history of revelation. Beginning with the creation of the first man, the Torah relates his conversation with God. Then we are introduced to the forefathers, leading to the formation of the Jewish people. The Torah then culminates with the Children of Israel’s experiences in the Sinai Desert, where they heard God speak and were taught the Torah by Moshe (Moses). And even after Moshe’s death, God continued to communicate with mankind through His prophets until the Second Temple. These revelations form the basis of all Jewish law, and therefore this first class in the Morasha series on the System of Halachah must clearly lay out the history of these revelations. Starting with Adam himself, we will trace the record of God’s communication with mankind and explain how these revelations developed into Halachah, Jewish law.
