Special message to all Boys and Girls!

Shavuot is the Festival of the Giving of the Torah.

When G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish people, the Jewish children were the guarantors! G‑d knew that He could count on the Jewish boys and girls to make sure the Jewish people would love the Torah, learn it, and do its holy mitzvahs.

Every year, on the same date of the giving of the Torah, we celebrate this special day by going to the synagogue and hearing the Ten Commandments.

Remember! YOU are the guarantors of the Torah. So make sure to be there! (And bring your friends along too.)

On Sunday, May 20, 2018, make sure to go to your local synagogue and hear the Ten Commandments.
