comment Do Jewish people believe in God?
they say we pray to the Torah. Personally, I vever saw anyone like that. Maybe they think that since we pray in the direction of the Aron (which contains Torah scrolls), they think we pray to them. Maybe we'll criticize someone for acting as if he prays to the seforim (like the classic person who learns Torah but forgot "the giver of the Torah"). I don't know anyone who actually prays to a book.
