So far we have explained the meaning of the term “Oral Torah” and how the Oral Torah came to be written down. Now we will present a more detailed explanation of the content of the Oral Torah. This class will discuss both the legal components of the Oral Torah and the Aggadic (philosophic) components. We will see that there are five categories of the Oral Law and give examples of each. In addressing the philosophical component of the Oral Torah, we will seek to understand why the Aggadata appear so obscure. Finally, the class will summarize the published compilations of the Oral Torah.
