Seeing Layers In The Ten Commandments

What Is The Ten Commandments' Underlying Theme?

How do the Ten Commandments still apply today? After all, most of them are not difficult to observe – “don’t steal… don’t kill” – these are not laws you need to think about daily. So do we actively apply the Ten Commandments in our lives – or is there a deeper theme that we're missing?

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he re-examines and simplifies the Ten Commandments to uncover the main themes. The Ten Commandments have a breadth of meaning hidden in its words that indicate an enormous amount about the way we should live our lives today.

By simplifying the layers, we can begin to uncover what is the central idea that lies at the heart of all the Ten Commandments – a theme that has an incredible influence on how we should manage all of our relationships.

Rabbi David Fohrman

Founder and Lead Scholar
