  1. You are quite welcome. Please feel free to submit your questions, but please one at a time.

    Regarding learning the Torah I would strongly recommend buying an ArtScroll Stone Chumash – you can order it online at www.artscroll.com – for about $50 and another approx. $25 shipping. It is an excellent translation with a terrific commentary.

    They also just published a book on the basics of Judaism which I whole-heartedly suggest getting – Gateway to Judasim by Rabbi Mordechai Becher.

    I am not familiar with your local Torah publication but I am somewhat sceptical of its representing true Torah principles.

    Learning Hebrew is tricky, but since you seem to have a knack for languages, so perhaps check out www.jewishsoftware.com and contact them to see if they have suitable program they would mail you, and/or do a web search to find a book called HaYesod which I have heard is a good text for learning the language from a book.

    Best wishes from Jerusalem.
