The Importance of Halacha
“It was taught in the academy of Eliyahu: Whoever studies Halacha (Jewish Law) every day is assured of life in the World to Come” (Talmud, Megillah 28b).
Learning Halacha, Jewish law, is layered with benefits. Most importantly, it teaches a Jew how to live a life of Torah and Mitzvot.
On top of that, Halacha stands out from other areas of Torah study, in that it reflects G-d’s will. Torah, in general, is a G-dly intellect. It’s a Divine logic packaged for man’s understanding. Jewish Law, however, teaches man what G-d wants. And by learning law, a person establishes a connection with the Divine will.
