Most Yeshivos (from 5th Grade-End of High school) Learn Talmud Bavli.
My question is: Why? What is the point of learning Talmud Bavli so extensively?
I know that it is Hashem's Word, but there are a lot of other things to learn which are more useful (ex. Shulchan Aruch Harav where he gives the reasons (mostly from the talmud) and gives the halacha) and are Hashem's words?
So why specifically learn Talmud Bavli? And why spend so much time on it?
Indeed, there is a reason that we would not learn Talmud Bavli; that we know that the whole point of learning is actual performance of mitzvot, so Talmud seems ineffective vis-à-vis e.g. Shulchan Aruch Harav
