The term "Torah" (Hebrew: ????, "teaching" or "instruction," sometimes translated as "Law,"]) most commonly refers to the text of the Five Books of Moses or Pentateuch. It may also refer to the entirety of Judaism's founding legal and ethical religious texts. When used with an indefinite article, "a Torah" usually refers to a "Sefer Torah" (??? ????, "book of Torah") or Torah scroll, written on parchment in a formal, traditional manner by a specially trained scribe under very strict requirements.
The Torah is the most holy of the sacred writings in Judaism. It is the first of three sections in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible), the founding religious document of Judaism, and is divided into five books, whose names in English are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, in reference to their themes (Their Hebrew names, Bereshit, ??????, Shemot ????, Vayikra ?????, Bamidbar ?????, and Devarim ?????, are derived from the wording of their initial verses). The Torah contains a variety of literary genres, including allegories, historical narrative, poetry, genealogy, and the exposition of various types of law. According to rabbinic tradition, the Torah contains the 613 mitzvot (?????, "commandments"), which are divided into 365 negative restrictions and 248 positive commands. In rabbinic literature, the word "Torah" denotes both the written text, "Torah Shebichtav" (???? ?????, "Torah that is written"), as well as an oral tradition, "Torah Shebe'al Peh" (???? ???? ??, "Torah that is oral"). The oral portion consists of the "traditional interpretations and amplifications handed down by word of mouth from generation to generation," now embodied in the Talmud and Midrash.-------------The Hanukkah Menorah (Hebrew: ????? menorah) (also Hebrew: ???????????? Hanukiah, or Chanukkiyah, pl. hanukiyot), (or Yiddish: ?????? ????? khanike lomp, Lit: Chanukah lamp, also ????? menorah) is a nine-branched candelabrum lit during the eight-day holiday of Hanukkah. The ninth branch is for a candle used to light all other candles called the shamash. This menorah has two branches more than a seven branched-menorah.
