Ten Commandments

A marble slab depicting the Ten Commandments which likely adorned the entrance of a synagogue that was destroyed by the Romans between CE 400 and 600, or by the Crusaders in the 11th century, has been bought by a private bidder and will be available for public viewing.

Jealousy

If we would concentrate on fulfilling the commandment to "love your fellow as yourself," we would never feel jealous of others who have more than we do.

Respecting elderly

When honoring our parents, we ensure that family peace, harmony and values are continued and passed on to the next generation. It is also a way of honoring G-d.
