Worship and Practices
The Torah is the foundation of Jewish religion and law and refers to the Five Books of Moses, the Pentateuch: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. But the word "torah" can also be used to refer to the entire Jewish bible. The body of scripture known to non-Jews as the Old Testament is considered the Jewish Torah. The text of the Torah is more or less the same in Jewish translations as the text in the Christian Bible. The differences in the translations are very minimal. Also, there are some occasional, slight differences in the numbering of verses between the two.
