Sunday, June 12th, approximately 11 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!
