A Grain of Sand

Tweeting the Torah

So I read online about a project to turn famous novels into Twitter messages. Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that enables people to send 140 character messages to a list of subscribers.

So, here's the challenge: I'd love for the brave to take a crack at reducing a torah portion/book of the torah/entire torah to a tweet. 140 characters. This week's Torah portion is Terumah, Exodus 25:1 - 27:19. Give it a shot.

  1. I claim no credit, but in case you haven't seen this - Torah in Haiku does it each week. . .in haiku: twitter.com/TheTorahInHaiku. twitter.com/torahtweets did some of the parashot last year, but not all.
    Hillel's "That which is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the whole Torah; the rest is commentary. Go and study it." is 123 characters ;-) even has room for a RT. Ahead of his time/timeless.
