  1. The most effective way to study and understand Torah is to learn it in its original Hebrew. But, as learning Hebrew fluently is quite an undertaking I would suggest that for the moment you study Torah in English. There is a plethora of excellent Torah books written in English that are easily available through the Internet from sites such as: wwww.eichlers.com or www.artscroll.com
