Definition of Dual torah

Dual torah Definition from Religion & Spirituality Dictionaries & Glossaries
Official Judaism Glossary
The Dual Torah is a creation of the rabbis during the Rabbinic Period. This belief is that God gave two Torahs at Mt. Sinai. The first one--the Written Torah--was in written form and is essentially the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. The second one--the Oral Torah--was passed down through the centuries from teacher to disciple. Eventually it was written down and incorporated into the Talmud. See also Torah.
