The Ten Commandments, read on the first day of Shavuot, are a foundational text of Judaism. But their prominence is also a puzzle. Why were these statements singled out from all other mitzvot to be publicly proclaimed to all Israel? What gives these brief pronouncements their distinctive significance?

This session will highlight the core questions addressed by each commandment and delve into several that speak to theological and interpersonal issues raised by the current pandemic.
