About Divrei Torah

Throughout the Jewish world, people draw inspiration from a "word of Torah", a flash of insight triggered by a textual reading or based on thousands of years of literature and thought. The stories and imperatives of the Bible serve as the medium for discussions on morality, family, life cycle events, and the things we struggle with in our daily lives.

SeventyFaces.com is your virtual Torah community, in which you can read and be inspired by others' words, as well as find your own voice.

The rabbis said that there are שבעים פנים לתורה, (shiv'im panim laTorah), seventy faces or aspects to the Torah. Now you can find them online.
