“Torah is not a book of history, neither is it a storybook in which interesting tales and episodes are recorded. According to the Midrash, the word Torah etymologically is associated with the word “hora’ah” - which means teaching and guidance (Zohar III:53b). Whatever parts of Torah one learns, one is to study and reflect on the message hidden in the words. Though on the surface it may seem that a particular place, event, or commandment is being discussed, one should also interpret the Torah in a way that reveals a timeless message and instruction.”
