In a series of lectures appropriate to the upcoming holiday of Shavuos, R. David Fohrman discusses on Aleph Beta Academy the Ten Commandments. “The Ten Commandments’ prominence in Judaism and in Western Civilization has been trumpeted in movies, and throughout history. But what spiritual message do the Commandments teach us? The Commandments and their deceptively simple structure betray deep meaning and the underlying principle of Judaism.”
