The Torah is the blueprint for the creation of the world. There is a chazal that says: "הסתכל באורייתא וברא עלמא" ~ "Hashem looked into the Torah and created the world. Every single thing we need to know is in the Torah. We can learn from our Avos and Imahos as to how to take the mussar of events that occured and apply them to our current lives so we do not repeat history!!

without the torah there would never have been judisim

the torah ties the jews to god iin cuture and sets a moral standard that has been woven into the jews has given the jews a moral standard to live by in behaviour, education,achievment and homelife.even if he shuts his eyes to it he cant escape it.inately it remains within him always.- it gos beyond belief,-its an attachment.

this is really chilling. this is literally what many of our ancestors did to stick to the words of the Holy Torah.

Because ...

It is who we are! It is our past, our present and our motivation for the future!

Without Torah, we are almost nothing.

The Torah is our guiding "handbook". Without it, we cannot reach our potential as Jews. If we were not ready to make almost any sacrifice, to preserve our Torah, then we and our religion would not have survived this long... we would have gone the way of the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, etc.
