From the Publisher

Dear Readers:

You may be wondering what is happening here. Did we fall into a time warp?                             Isn't it sacreligious to spoof the Torah into a newspaper?

Please be assured that you are in the right place at just the right time.

We are not just reminiscing here for old time's sake. The Torah Times is entertaining, but it is no joke. Rather than just read Torah as a once-upon-a-time story, we relive Torah events, as they happen. Torah is real, here, and NOW.

Let us not view Torah personalities as archaic characters in flowing robes. They and their concerns represent us, here and now in the Twentieth century. They are as current and contemporary as today's news.

The Torah itself does not wish to be treated as an ancient chronlicle, but as a relevant issue: The words I command you this day shall be on your heart. Torah should always be seen as new. (Rashi on the Shema)

TTT - It's what's happening!
