Still the Talmud is very difficult and one needs to study it extensively to understand it’s structure, method and logic. Kabbalah is the mystical teachings of the Torah handed down through the generations. As time went on, it started to become somewhat revealed, first by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai in the first century AD, as recorded in the Zohar.

Kabbalah is mystical Judaism, Torah is the first 5 books of the TaNaKh (Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus and Deuteronomy), and the Talmud is a combination of historical data, interpretation of Torah, customs and beliefs of Judaism. They are all Jewish sacred books and there are others as well.

It is the traditional mystical understanding of the Torah. Kabbalah stresses the reasons and understanding of the commandments, and the cause of events described in the Torah. Kabbalah includes the understanding of the spiritual spheres in creation, and the rules and ways by which G-d administers the existence of the universe.

Torah Definition. Torah, on the other hand, is the Hebrew word for “instruction”. The Torah is most widely known as the five books of Moses. Another word for Torah is “Pentateuch” which is more widely used in some Jewish nations. Like the Talmud, it is also a very religious manuscript.

Jerusalem and Babylonian Talmuds The Talmud is a collection of writings that covers the full gamut of Jewish law and tradition, compiled and edited between the third and sixth centuries. Talmud is Hebrew for "learning," appropriate for a text that people devote their lives to studying and mastering.

The Torah is the 5 Books of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is, in essence, the Hebrew Bible. It contains 613 commandments and is the entire context of Jewish laws and traditions. The Jews do not call this the Old Testament, because for them, they do not have New Testament.

The word talmud means learning, closely related to the word talmid, Hebrew for “student.” The Talmudic commentaries on the Mishnah have another name as well, gemara, Aramaic for “completion,” thus named because they provide the full context and interpretation for the Mishnah. Since the middle ages, Gemara has become the preferred term for Talmud among learned Jews.
