Adult Education

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”
            ~ Albert Einstein

Lifelong learning is a core value of Judaism. We study to learn “how” and we study to learn “why.”

Preparing for Shavuot—An in-depth look at the Ten Commandments On Shavuot, which we will celebrate at the beginning of June, we commemorate the receiving of the Ten Commandments at Sinai. But, what are these Ten Commandments? Are there really ten of them? Are the commandments really commandments, or are they more reflective of their Hebrew name, the “Aseret haDibrot” or the “Ten Statements.” The emphasis of the Ten Commandments has always been a source of tension and conflict in Judaism. On the one hand, the Torah explicitly states that the Ten Commandments comprise the covenant between God and the Children of Israel, while on the other hand, there is so much more to Judaism than just these “ten” commandments. In this month’s class, we’ll look at what these 10 statements are all about. Are there really ten commandments there in the first place? We’ll look at connections between the commandments. We’ll look at differences between the two different sets of Ten Commandments. Come explore this journey into the Ten Commandments in honor of the upcoming Shavuot holiday.
