Do The Translations Of The Torah Match The Original?

Laitman_137Question: Does a translator of spiritual texts have to be a Kabbalist? After all, he inserts his perception of reality into a translation.

Answer: If you read the Torah in Russian, you must notice that the text does not match precisely the original Hebrew.

The Torah was written 3,000 years ago by Moses. Then 1,500 years ago, they began to translate its texts from Hebrew, with many additions and distortions that each one made according to what came to his mind.

If you want to read the Torah in Russian, I would recommend the Chumash (five books of Moses) that they are publishing in Israel. That is a clean and precise word-for-word translation.
