10 Commandments & Ice Cream

Sunday, June 12th, approximately 10:30 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!

Having become obligated to keep the laws of Kashrut on the day they received the Torah, it was not possible for the Children of Israel to immediately prepare Kosher meat. That day they ate dairy instead, resulting in the custom of eating dairy on Shavuot.

Following the Service we will therefore have a dairy Ice Cream & Cheesecake Kiddush!
