Abstract: The Book of Judith, an ingenious piece of narrative theology, time and again urges the reader to refer back to the Torah. An intertextual, reader-oriented and text-centered method sheds light on these allusions. The paper focuses especially on the Halakhic aspects in the book of Judith, i.e., the normative passages that influence the deeds and behavior of Jewish daily life. The main points will cover the issue of food (dietary laws and the eating of sacra), the question of purity, and the sacrifices. Other topics play a minor role (e.g., endogamy, the prohibition of putting God to the test, the difference between God and man, the exception of Achior’s admission to the house of Israel) and will be addressed briefly. The intertextual connections reveal a concept of subtle paraenesis, in fact, the book of Judith teaches Torah – as a major side effect of this fascinating and thrilling story. – There are many references within the Book of Judith to narrative passages of the Torah, especially the first part of the Book of Exodus, but these intertextual connections go beyond the scope of this paper and deserve separate studies.
