Shavuos at Aleph

ShavuoS
at The Aleph Institute - N.E. Regional Headquarters
Shavuos: May 31st-June 1, 2017
Message from Rabbi Vogel
Over 3,326 years ago, the children of Israel stood as one nation at the foot of the 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. 
Please join us at our annual Ten Commandments Reading (6pm-Wednesday) followed by cheesecake. 
Wishing you a Happy Shavuos,
Rabbi Vogel
 

Celebrate Shavuos with us at The Aleph Institute. ... It’s not the same without you!

10 Commandments
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 were -- and still 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 Mitzvoth . 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!
