Rabbi David, Thank you for a clear explanation of the meaning of the 10 commandments. The series is amazing.

the Ten Commandments are actually instructions on how to worship our Father in Heaven and live in peace with our fellow man. everything else is just commentary on ways of doing that.

Love and Blessings

The Ten Commandments are a necessity for the world and the human family, if we are to survive, and relearn (each generation it seems) the importance and necessity of co-operation, Respect, True tolerance, Kindness, Honesty, and civilized, decent behaviour. Ten commandment Laws encourage consistent self-governance and serve as reminders of the standard of which the human family needs daily awareness in order to maintain human life as decent, and encourage, love to be shared - true love.

Wow! I'm frum from birth but I learned so much from these videos ..and they were fun to watch. Rabbi Fohrman continues to give me new insight into Torah topics "I thought I knew".
