Overview

Award-winner of the 2011 Hollywood Book Festival, bestselling thriller The Torah Codes has been called a Jewish version of The Da Vinci Code.

"FIVE STARS - I wish I could put an additional star on the rating system for this book." - Roseanne Schmidt, Goodreads.com, July 21, 2011

"FIVE STARS - Let me put this quite baldly: the question before us is not a fictional one. If The Torah Codes describes a real phenomenon, then we are talking about statistical evidence that the scriptures are indeed supernatural�that is to say, holy, inspired by a force with, at the very least, a god�s-eye-view of history. Including, one might presume, future history." - Ien Nivens, Berkshire Fine Arts, May 23, 2011

A reclusive computer programmer, Nathan Yirmorshy, pounds out ones and zeros in the quiet of his home while his landlord secretly watches from behind a two-way mirror. When an intercepted note connects the landlord to a secret society, and a detective ends up dead, Nathan must abandon his home and everything familiar to him, open his heart to a tarot reader he has never met, and trust her with his life--just as the ancient scriptures have foretold.

An appendix of essays by rabbis, doctors, and physicists discuss the themes of the book, specifically, the Bible codes and the Shekinah, the female aspect of God. Read the first chapter at

5 stars! Let me put this quite baldly: the question before us is not a fictional one. If The Torah Codes describes a real phenomenon, then we are talking about statistical evidence that the scriptures are indeed supernatural�that is to say, holy, inspired by a force with, at the very least, a god�s-eye-view of history. Including, one might presume, future history.
Avid Reader - Andrew Christenson
I read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down. Every chapter kept me hooked. Fascinating and smart.
Avid Reader - Jonathan Berman
5 stars!...And the book roars along for quite some time in that manner, driven both by plot twists and -- of far greater importance -- a superb main character. Nathan is smart, odd, witty, and a bit world-weary. He's a great character to tag along with. The pages seem to turn themselves.
Avid Reader - Mackenzie Jones
5 stars! I did not expect to enjoy this book so much as it isn't my usual genre. I did read The Da Vinci Code so was curious about the comparison. I think Mr. Barany's book was far better written. The story held my attention, loved his unusual humor. In fact, I had to force myself to stop reading last night. Would definitely recommend. A real plus is that part of the purchase goes to Bay Area schools.
The Book Review - A. R. Cook
5 stars! The book contains a healthy portion of suspense, action, and mystery. This book is a page-turner that I found very difficult to put down. The book has kind of a Dan Brown Da Vinci Code feel to it. The appendix is good reading as well as food for thought and should not be skipped. The author is donating a portion of the book sales to the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Schools. A good book and helping a good cause is a winning combination!
