It's much more than a book
Since I can think, the Torah was the most important book in my life. How else could I have known at the age of 14, that I want to belong to God as long as I live. Where did I know this from? From reading Torah. I loved reading. But I knew, I learned all about the creator of the world and the universe, but this creater loved us, loved what He had created. And this love story only became more and more intense. It is natural, to love Him back. And who, who fell in love, does not know that every word the loved one writes, is the most important thing in the whole world. Later in life I learned too, that
He is asking you to do what He wants you to do. But that also shows His love. I am far from being perfect, and sometimes I am sad about it. But when I don't know what to say, I only have to look at the Psalms. There you find words for everything you feel. (I must confess, that I speak of the "written Torah") And where do you find everything again? In the Siddur. Our daily prayerbook. Baruch Hu. - and He sent me the right teachers, who tought me. All my life. Til today.

This is very good
It is very inspiring to see how learning Torah has a practical value in everyday living for people with their feet well planted on the ground, be they laureated scientists, housewives, financial executives, famous artists, or religious scholars. How the wisdom gained through Torah study contributes to success in their chosen path, adds meaning and purpose, and enhances the quality of their lives.
This film has moved me to take specific actions about my Jewish life: join a study course, and stop being disenfranchised and become part of a community. Thanks for sharing this marvelous monument of encouragement. Much blessings to all!
