The Validity Of The Torah

If we find the Torah irrelevant when trying to determine our humanity and how to attain it, we must ask where the fault lies.  Is it possible that this document, which has nurtured the soul of man throughout recorded time, has nothing of interest to say on a subject that so troubles our spirit?  It founded the lives of the most skeptical and scholarly people in history for thousands of years, and profoundly affected the worldview of every nation which came in contact with it.  What will explain this relentless, penetrating influence?

Lawrence Kelemen was awarded his undergraduate degree at U.C.L.A. and did graduate studies at Harvard.  He wrote a thesis to disprove all religions. When he came across the traditional claim of Judaism he could not disprove it. He traveled to the Middle East to conduct 12 years of post graduate field research.  A summary of some of his work can be found below.
