Halakah an interpretation of the laws of the Scriptures
halakah community rules, "the walk" or "teaching"
halakah (ha-lah-kah). “On the way” or “on the road” originates from the Aramaic word, ‘hilkheta’ (the direction of the action) and the Hebrew word ‘holech’ (from the verb ‘to walk’).

Hilkheta and Holech give us ‘Halakah,’ which means, ‘This is the way to go.’  So halakah has a distinctive double meaning: the road (or the way) and the discipline or law one is living.
