The Practical Challenge of Torah Study That Transcends Denominations
Studying the Torah historically and contextually brings together people from a diverse range of religious backgrounds and commitments. (See TheTorah.com’s list of Authors.) Academic study challenges us to transcend our communal affiliations and biases as we attempt to understand what the Torah and other biblical texts meant to the ancient Israelites, and thus, might mean to us.
On a practical level however, transcending denominations means that we don’t fit into an existing communal “box” for purposes of funding. You, and readers like you around the world, are our community.
So we are reaching out and asking for your support. Project TABS is a non-profit, 501c3 organization. We have been operating with just two full-time staff and a few part-time personnel. But in order for us to continue publishing pieces each week and developing new content, we need partners who will support our work.
If you read TheTorah.com, I invite you to be a part of our effort and to consider giving back to this project, either on a one-time or monthly basis.
Or you can send us a check (Email info at thetorah.com for our mailing address).
TheTorah.com has operated for four consecutive years through the support of a small number of generous individuals to whom we are indebted. We are also grateful to our authors for sharing their expertise, and to our readers for making Torah and academic scholarship a reality.
