- n. Talmudic literature that deals with law and with the interpretation of the laws on the Hebrew Scriptures
Sorry, no etymologies found.
This teaching is either halaka (way) or "customary law", or agada, "information", given by or about the Law.
The verb halaka, to create, is used throughout, for which I have necessarily substituted to make, in order to retain the same word throughout the verse.
And, one more note on the spiritual consequences of halakha vs. non-halaka though, hopefully this is clear, I’m not so hot on the utilitarian value of the system.
