On a recent visit to the Smithsonian Museums in Washington D.C. I had a thought; look at all these beautiful artifacts and parts of history that are made of gold, silver, and precious stone, all on display behind a beautiful glass display case. "What a shame?" Such precious pieces, such priceless gifts and all that is gained is a moment of grandeur from a passing visitor in a museum. We, the Jewish people, were given an extremely precious and priceless gift. This gift came from G‑d himself. He presented us with the Torah, the greatest gift of all time, on Mt. Sinai some 3,315 years ago. The Torah is not an ancient article on display. It is not one that a passerby should look at and say, "You see my child, that's the Torah... G‑d's gift to humanity... but don't touch it... don't get near it... just look at it from a distance." No, G‑d wants us to use this gift, to enjoy it, to study it and to gain from it. This gift is to be a "light unto the world" and each and every one of us should be the lamplighter.
We invite you to join us at The Jewish Community Center - Chabad, as we take the Torah out of the showcase and make it part of our lives - today!
Join us for classes on a wide variety of subjects, such as the crash course on reading Hebrew, Talmud, Kabbala - Mysticism, Jewish History, weekly Torah portion, or any subject that you wish to study.
