Disc 114, Program 453

Shavuos celebrates the Giving of the Torah at Sinai. Jews in every generation gather to hear the reading of the Ten Commandments, for on this day they receive renewed strength in their mission to brighten G-d’s world.

This applies to Jewish children in particular, for G-d did not agree to give His Torah to the Jewish people until they offered their children as its guarantors. Jewish children are thus especially empowered on this day to grow not only in their own relationship with G-d, but to nurture their friends’ and family’s relationships with G-d as well.

When life’s challenges get tough, the first Commandment reminds you of the secret to the Jewish people’s survival and success throughout exile: “I am the Lord, your G-d, Who took you out of the land of Egypt” – the Creator of the universe Himself is standing by your side to deliver you from your every personal challenge in life, and ultimately the entire world from the exile itself.

Shavuot Very well done. Children should be present and learn about their Religion and cultures. Reply
