The Oral Torah comprises the legal and interpretative traditions that, according to tradition, were transmitted orally from Mount Sinai, and were not written in the Torah. According to Rabbinic Judaism, the oral Torah, oral Law, or oral tradition (Template:Hebrew Name 1) was given by God orally to Moses in conjunction with the written Torah (Template:Hebrew Name 1), after which it was passed down orally through the ages.
