Most Yeshivos (from 5th Grade-End of Highschool) 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?
And even a reason why we would not learn Talmud Bavli is because we know that the whole point of learning is actual limaaseh bipoal so Talmud seems to contradict that. Ma Shayne Kane Halcha: ex. Shulchan Aruch Harav
