JEWISH HOLY SCRIPTURES SAY TORAH IS NOT FOR NON-JEWS
The Written Torah the first five books in the bible ― and other Hebrew bible verses maintain that Torah is exclusively applicable to Jews and no one else. This is clearly shown in these verses:
In the following scriptures, to whom is the Hebrew god ― Invisible Man in the Sky referring?
and I will remember My covenant [with] Jacob, and also My covenant [with] Isaac, and also My covenant [with] Abraham I will remember.... (Leviticus 26:42 Judaica Press Tanakh 1)
And four verses later you see precisely what the Hebrew god ― Invisible Man in the Sky gave and to whom:
These are the statutes, the ordinances, and the laws that the Lord gave between Himself and the children of Israel on Mount Sinai, by the hand of Moses. (Leviticus 26:46)
Again, it is clear Torah was not given to non-Jews Gentiles; heathens and harlots according to the Talmud:
Rabbi Yoel Schwartz2 wrote that rabbis of the past took measures to keep the Torah away from heathens/harlots ― Gentiles. Schwartz cites examples of this caution:
"A non-Jew who studies the Torah is deserving of death at the hands of Heaven", as it is said "the Torah which God commanded us as an inheritance;" "to us and not to them." (View it: Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 59a)
"His status and his laws to Israel he declared; He did not do so to any other nation. and they so not know the Laws... Psalms 147
The Zohar3, source of the Jewish Kabbalah, points out at length the great transgression that is committed by passing on the Torah to non-Jews: "... any man who does not hold himself back from handing over even the smallest letter of the Torah is as if he had destroyed the world and told falsehood in the name of the Holy One, Blessed be He. For everything depends on it, as it is said: "If I had not established My covenant day and night, the laws of heaven and earth I would not have set" (Jeremiah 33:25). Also "This is the Torah that Moses placed before the Children of Israel" (Deut. 4:44) i.e. not before the other Nations.
Here the Zohar expresses the idea in terms of unacceptability in teaching those who are uncircumcised (heathens/gentiles), for all the words of Torah are Names of God, and to teach them to people in this condition would bring destruction to the world. We see the extent to which neither the Written nor the Oral Law should be taught, even the Ten Commandments, as it is said, "to Israel they were given, not to the Nations". Midrash Rabbah to Numbers 8:4 4
After all this, Rabbi Schwartz then resorts to the OPINION of men the Oral Torah claiming that God gave each word of Torah to Moses seventy times one for each of the seventy languages of the heathen/gentile nations.5 [CR Note: Schwartz cites Midrash Rabbah to Exodus 85:19. Strange, because Exodus has only 40 chapters, not 85.]
So now you are expected to swallow an even bigger tale; that Moses received 71 written Torahs ― in 70 different languages of the non-Jews, plus the Hebrew version for the Jews. This is laughable, ― simply preposterous but typical of rabbinic/Talmudic conjured derivations. This tall tale is not even found in Torah, even though it has tales of a walking, talking snake, giant fish walking on land and more idiocy. The 71 different torahs is the product of someone's imagination; simply put, it is extra-Torah supposedly found in a collection of Jewish stories relating to words, themes, or narratives in the Hebrew bible ( Midrash Rabbah).
ALL of the information cited above is quoted directly from Judaism's 'holy' scriptures; read it for yourselves. It is sick, perverted and insidious. All followers, religiholics, of Abrahamic Derivative Religions (ADR) suffer from a shared psychotic delusional disorder. Don't be among that number.

"In the modern Jewish world ... when it comes to the re-formed Sanhedrin, the various religious groups, from the Reform Movement to haredim, seem unified in their lack of enthusiasm for the initiative, albeit for different reasons. ... "With respect to the rabbis that sit on the so-called Sanhedrin ... they have no authority," says Rabbi Barry Schlesinger president of the Masorti (Conservative) Movement's Rabbinic Assembly ...
