Enigma of the Torah is a play about a group of Jews who study Torah every Shabbat morning. Through their study of the Torah, the characters express their Jewishness, contemporary issues, and personal conflicts. The play, written by two Jewish Torah Study participants after years of observation, is at times funny, at times sad, at times contentious, and always on target. Through Torah study, the characters discover their own personal enigmas, The presentation at Limmud consists of a selected portion of the play, which is dedicated to the late members of the playwrights' Torah Study group. The full play is scheduled to be presented on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, at the Marigny Opera House .
