Torah Tapestries is a unique collection of insights into the first weekly public readings of the Torah ( Jewish Bible) based on talks given by Shira Smiles who has taught thousands of women in person and on the internet over the past two decades.

From each "Bible Reading", a central idea emerges, with practical implications for the here-and-now. Whether it is lessons in how to give to others, based on Noah's life, or how we are to survive as Jews in exile, Shira Smiles gives us daily inspiration, something to take along on our personal journey through life.

Her sources range from classic commentators to contemporary writers, from Chassidic masters to famous Non-Chassidic scholars. Jewish Law and Jewish Lore – all are woven into this rich tapestry of Jewish thought, deeply imbued with love of G-d and His Torah.

In one book , you can take advantage of thousands of hours of work and toil involved in creating this work of Biblical artistry.
