I’ve only taken a few religious classes… but don’t the Jews tend to you know, consider the Torah something like the word of god made… well words…

As in there is something holy in and of itself about the book…

Would any Jewish Lizards care to step forward and correct/back me up here?

Most Jews are likely at Erev Rosh Hashana dinner right now (except for me as I am sick lying in bed while my family celebrates at my Mother’s home - good news is they are bringing me chicken soup). So I will give the best answer I can.

The Torah is generally accepted to be the word of God as written by Moses. The book itself is considered holy and when taken out of circulation, Torahs are burried rather than thrown out.

That said, over the last few thousands of years, as you can imagine, many Torahs have been destroyed and burned. While it is of course viewed as an abhorrent act, it has never resulted in riots, other than those that rounded up the Jews to kill them,
