Torah Resources International is an organization comprised of individuals who are seriously committed to knowing Yeshua as the Living Word and Messiah by studying the entire Torah, from Genesis through Revelation. We are a group of teachers and authors who seek to promote the biblically Hebraic concepts of the Torah with the hope that people will gain a greater depth of understanding of Yeshua, as well as how we were created to live.

We invite you to participate in this challenging and exciting learning process with us that you too might catch a glimpse of the truth that the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, are truly darche noam, ways of pleasantness for all who take hold of them.

Torah Portion from Briteinu

Va’etchanan ואתחנן

Deuteronomy 3:23–7:11

God Is a Consuming Fire

We often think of Moshe as a prophet and lawgiver. However, sometimes in the Torah we get a glimpse of his talent for writing. This parasha provides one of these occasions. In 4:1–24, Moshe builds on the theme of fire. First, he reminds Israel that the mountain from which God spoke to them was “burning with fire up to the heart of heaven …” (4:11). Then in 4:12, he relates how the Lord actually “spoke to you out of the fire.” Continuing the motif of fire, Moshe says in 4:20, that the Holy One brought Israel up “out of the iron-smelting furnace (a method for refining metal using fire,) out of Egypt … .” Finally, the point to which Moshe was building, he declares in 4:24, “God is a consuming fire.” What are we to learn from this image of fire?

From the Haftarah

Isaiah 40:1–26

The Announcement of Comfort

This passage represents Isaiah at his best and is one of his most well-known. It introduces the second half of his book and centers on comforting God’s people, as the opening words indicate to us. The reason for the comfort, according to the text, is because God is coming! Therefore, Israel is to make the way ready for His arrival. The haftarah concludes with a great section comparing the follies of idolatry with the blessings of knowing the one true God, the One who is coming.


For those who like guidelines for studying biblical books or passages, Ariel is sharing his own study outlines in this new section: Guided Torah Studies. It can often be a bit daunting to study a whole book of the Bible or even a large passage. How do you start? What questions do you ask? How much background do you need to know to really understand the book or passage? What are the main points that God is trying to get across to us?

These Guided Torah Studies will help you get started and direct your path of study, thus enhancing your study experience and enabling you to dig deeper into the Scriptures and the Author who inspired them.

The Academy offers biblical training in modules that are organized as “Sitting Rooms.” A unique place of learning for all ages. In a Sitting Room you go through pictures and text taking time to “sit still within truth.” In this way, you will develop a biblical vocabulary and build fundamental concepts needed for living Torah.

This is TRI’s Torah Institute’s first online course. We are endeavouring to help Bible students to rediscover the precious foundations of their faith, which are deeply rooted in the fabric of scripture from Genesis to Revelation. The course material emphasizes the continuing authority that the Torah [The Five Books of Moses] has for all serious students of the Word of God.

The 7-10 day Wilderness Israel Study Expedition [WISE] is designed for anyone who is seeking personal freedom to live in new dimensions of intimacy with Yeshua. The week is set apart for you. Set apart for you to find your place as one who bears The Light of God’s Heavenly Kingdom here upon the earth. Take time to come to The Wilderness where God is our teacher.

Hanukkah in the Home of the Redeemed

This booklet presents a fictional character, Ya’akov, as he journeyed through this historically exceptional Passover week as any Jewish pilgrim from Galilee might.

Here is what ADONAI says:

“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask about the ancient paths,
‘Which one is the tov way?’
Take it, and you will find rest for “your beings”.

“Should,” “Must,” or “Have To”

Our hearts want to communicate something that we think is important. In our exploration of the non-Jewish person’s relationship to the Torah, we have scrupulously avoided the use of “must,” “should,” and “have to,” as these ideas are completely inappropriate to the issues at hand.

The use of such words tends to open the door wide to the possibility of legalism taking over. By “legalism,” we mean the belief that adherence to the Torah is a requirement for obtaining, and/or maintaining, one’s justification before God.
