Question

Moses wrote the Torah in Hebrew. Could the slaves who left Egypt read the scrolls that Moses eventually wrote? About what year after leaving Egypt was the Torah written? Thank you!

Answer

To the Questioner, 

1. The Jewish Nation who left Egypt were able to read Hebrew. 

2. The Torah was given 50 days after the exit from Egypt and was completed to be written over the course of 40 years from the time of leaving Egypt.
