This is a beautiful, moving video

By Sara Yoheved Rigler, based on the teachings of Rabbi Noach Weinberg, of blessed memory.

Almost better than the original article by Mrs S Y Rigler!

So glad to be reminded of her wonderful writing, "The Revolutionary Revelation" (still found in Shavuot "Themes") and then her meditation for Shavuot, "God's Greatest Gift," which I enjoy singing to the catchy "Regesh Niggun" by Rabbi S. Brasil (call 443-469-4019 and I'll try to share how well it also fits the titles of the "48 Ways to Wisdom!" )
Thank you to "Anonymous" who responded well, to the 1st Comment on Mrs Rigler's work.

We might have gotten out of Egypt...but Egypt would not have gotten out of us.

So very good.

What a well put together video. Says it all in a nutshell. What Moses received from G-D on Mt. Sinai was given to the Jewish People first for a reason. They would preserve & live by it. Take it with them to the four connors of the Earth. Live by example-a light to the world! G-D did write his law on every human Heart anyway, but the Torah proves it beyond any doubt.

What about Asians/

The Asians I know are moral, open to various orientations, well read,industrious, honest--etc-etc. all respect life ,none murder anyone,all great students. Most,I think, are Buddhists.
How did they get that way without Torah?

They didn't.

The giving of the Torah introduced values to the world which were then adopted by lots of people. Thats the simple answer.
Furthermore, on a deeper level, Torah, as the word of God, predates creation and is the blueprint of the world. (This is brief as necessitated by this forum).
As such, the Torah morals are essentially ingrained in the moral fibre of every human being. Latent, but present. To a certain degree, man can find this internal moral compass without the actual study of Torah because it is already ingrained in him.
However, as man also has animalistic instincts, he can be led astray and the lines between his moral compass and his own desires become very blurred at best, or obliterated at worst. Reverting to the original blueprint clarifies the truth and so Torah study is esssntial to ascertaining real Godly morals and not man made fluctuating ones that are influenced by our desires.
So if there are non Torah people who have real True Torah morals, that is because they have not become adulterated by their own desires and the moral filth that surrounds us.
