Structure is the core of all existence. From the double helix of a single strand of DNA to the makeup of the cosmos, our universe follows a definite and amazing pattern. But the order of our world transcends the merely physical. The pattern of our world is as all-encompassing as its Divine Source , penetrating all dimensions and levels. Rabbi Moshe Shlomo Emanuel, author of the well-known and important work, "Tefillin: The Inside Story", now gives us a fascinating and deep look into the patterns that exist within Torah and Jewish life. "Torah Patterns" reveals the distinct order that permeates and encompasses the Torah, the mitzvos, history, the festivals, and the lives of the patriarchs and matriarchs. The Jewish people have a particularly intimate connection with G-d's structured universe, a connection forged on Seder night, literally, "the night of the order." This night of Jewish freedom created an eternal bond between G-d and His people, and marked them as uniquely as a part of His pattern. This pattern, Rabbi Emanuel shows us, permeates the very essence of our lives. "Torah Patterns" is both a fascinating and important study, which will change the way we look at the world around us, and the way we look at you.
