10 Commandments

Sunday, May 24th, approximately 11:30 am

Come with your entire family to hear the 10 Commandments read from the Torah, as it was read on Mount Sinai!

Our Sages explain that before G-d gave the Torah to the Jewish People, He demanded guarantors. The people suggested our forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; but these were not sufficient. They cited many other great leaders and people but G-d did not accept them either! Finally, they declared, "Our children will be our guarantors!" G-d immediately accepted and agreed to give them the Torah.

The Jewish Children were -- and still are -- the guarantors and transmitters of the Torah. Our commitment to their education has always been the best assurance to the continuity of Torah and Mitzvoth . When G-d gave the Torah on Mt. Sinai, every Jewish child was present. Let us ensure that our children will be there this year too!
