Shabbat Shalom: Yitro

Posted on January 21, 2022

Shabbat Shalom!

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: When you make a list, do you put the most important item first? Do you put it last? And when you look at someone else’s list, do you make an assumption of the relative importance of each item based on its placement in the order? In this week’s Torah portion, the Ten Commandments are given to Moses on Mt. Sinai. (See the list at the bottom of this section.) Do you think they have equal importance or are some more important than others? Does that have any relation to the order in which they appear?
