Rabbi's Message

3,333 years ago, the Jewish People stood as one nation at the foot of Mount Sinai and received the Torah from G‑d. Each year on the holiday of Shavuos, this historic event is re-lived as the Ten Commandments are read from the Torah.

At Chabad House Jewish Center, we offer many events for you and your family to celebrate with us. Please join us for the outdoor, socially distant reading of the Ten commandments and refreshments.

You can find more information about the holiday and our programming below.

Wishing you a happy Shavuot!
Rabbi Mendy & Rochy

Hear the 10 Commandments

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 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 Mitzvos . 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!
