What qualifies as "Torah"?


We have been learning about Birchot haTorah, the blessings recited before studying Torah.

What qualifies as Torah to require these blessings? Biblical text (chumash, navi and ketuvim), as well as the legal comments of the Mishnah and Gemara (talmud), and the explanations and analyses found in classic Midrash.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 47:2)

Have a great day,
