The Emergent Torah

Creative spirituality from the roots up

What is emergence?

Emergence is the idea that forms and systems come into being through interaction and relationships.

What is Torah? 

Torah is a Hebrew word that means “teaching.” 

Torah sometimes refers specifically to first five books of the Hebrew Bible. In Jewish tradition, Torah has a more expansive meaning. Torah can be thought of as the entire body of wisdom transmitted to us, or received by us, from the Divine or Source of Life, as well as our interactions with that wisdom.

It is an element of Jewish practice that we immerse ourselves in Torah – we read it, study it, engage with it, challenge it and wrestle with it. By doing so, we actually become co-creators of Torah and allow new meanings and insights to emerge.
