In the lead up to Shavuot, Morah Jenny and Morah Erika’s Year 1 classes learnt about the עֲשֶׂרֶת הַדִּבְּרוֹת (The 10 Utterances – or 10 ‘Commandments’).

After learning about these rules, the students were tasked with writing an additional important rule to live by, their own ‘11th Commandment’. A highlight of our K-2 Shavuot ceremony last week was having students come to the stage and share their 11th Commandments with the Years K-2 students and staff. 

As you can see from the thoughtful examples below, we can all engage in acts of תִּקּוּן עוֹלָם – repairing our world, by striving to live by these 11th Commandments.
