Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz ” Torah has no bounds.”

In the very last paragraph of the last chapter of Rabbi Steinsaltz’s book The Essential Talmud, Rabbi Steinsaltz writes:

“The work (the Talmud), a compilation of the endeavors of many generations that is edited with excessive precision and has been studied by tens of thousands of scholars, still remains a challenge.

Of the verse, ‘I have seen an end of every purpose,’ (Psalm 119) the sages said: ‘Everything has its boundaries, even Heaven and earth have their boundaries.

Only Torah has no bounds’ ”
