The following scenes of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix are the motivations of chapters in Harry Potter and Torah:
- Sirius's death: Harry's parent's friend Sirius is killed at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and falls through a curtain in a magical room called the Death Chamber. This curtain is remarkably like a curtain discussed several places in the Talmud and Jewish commentaries, discussed in-depth in a chapter on Ghosts and Curtains in Harry Potter and Torah.
- The prophecy: The end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix presents us with a fateful prophecy about Harry's destined battle with the evil Voldemort. "Neither can live while the other survives." This is interestingly close to the eternal conflict between the Jewish people and the descendants of Esau, as discussed in the Harry Potter and Torah chapter titled When One Rises, the Other will Fall.
- Dreams: The theme of prophetic dreams is a big one in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, with Harry's dreams showing more and more of what's happening in Voldemort's mind. What does the Torah, Talmud, and Jewish law say about truth of dreams? This is discussed in Harry Potter and Torah's chapter Dreams: Divination or Digestion?
- Ghosts: At the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (at least in the book) we hear an interesting theory of ghosts, particularly who becomes a ghost and why many people don't. What does Torah thought say about ghosts? Many examples appear in the chapter Ghosts and Curtains in Harry Potter and Torah.
- Unity: The need for good people to stay united in combatting evil is a continuing theme in Order of teh Phoenix, and has a chapter of its own in Harry Potter and Torah.
These story themes and many more can be used to motivate discussions of Torah, the supernatural, morality, and spirituality, if parents and teachers are prepared. For more on how to prepare, see Harry Potter and Torah's home page, or buy it at Amazon (even in the UK) or Barnes and Noble.
