Root Cause

Much like the rest of the Written Torah, the Ten Commandments are stated very concisely. And yet, despite their brevity, the Rabbis teach that the Ten Commandments contain all the fundamental tenets of Judaism within them. Moreover, each of the commandments have their root in the very first Commandment: I am the L-rd your G-d.
Ten Commandments, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Root Cause
Disc 166, Program 664

Event Date: 13 Av 5751 - July 24, 1991

Much like the rest of the Written Torah, the Ten Commandments are stated very concisely. And yet, despite their brevity, the Rabbis teach that the Ten Commandments contain all the fundamental tenets of Judaism within them.

But while each of the Ten Commandments addresses a different area of Jewish observance, in an address to children, the Rebbe explains that they all have their root and cause in the very first Commandment: I am the Lord your God.
