The Talmud records a debate about whether “study” or “action” is more important. The conclusion - “study is greater because it leads to action.” (Talmud Kiddushin 40b) As a modern orthodox community, we are well-positioned to translate the enormous breadth and profound depths of our tradition in relevant terms. Importantly, we place the Torah’s wisdom in the dialogue with knowledge and wisdom broadly. We’re followers of Maimonides who said to “accept truth from whoever says it” and viewed the pursuit of knowledge as universal.
