1. TORAH TZIVAH LONU MOSHE MOROSHOH KEHILAS YAAKOV

"The Torah that Moshe commanded us is the heritage of the congregation of Yaakov." (Deuteronomy 33:4)

The Torah was given to us through Moshe, G-d's most faithful servant.

And every single Jew, boy or girl, inherits the torah for himself or herself. Whether they have studied Torah for years, or only know a very little bit, it is their inheritance - to learn and to keep, the very nicest present that G-d gave.

2. SHEMA YISROEL, AD-DO-NOI ELO-HAI-NOO, AH-DO-NOI ECHOD.

"Hear O Israel, G-d is our L-rd, G-d is One." (Deuteronomy 6:4)

The Shema teaches us that G-d is One, and that He is everywhere.

Do you know the song:

Hashem is here, Hashem is there,

Hashem is truly everywhere; (2)

Up, up, down, down,

Right, left, and all around.

Here, there, and everywhere.

That's where He can be found.

(Up, up...)(2)

Hashem is everywhere. That's why "One" in Hebrew is Echod - Aleph, Ches, Daled.

Aleph - is 1: The One G-d of the world, Who gives all things life, in every place, and all the time. Ches - is 8: The 7 heavens and the earth. Daled - is 4: The four far-flung corners of the world.

3. B'CHOL DOR VODOR CHAYOV ODOM LEEROS ES ATZMO KI-EELOO HOO YOTZO MEE-MITZROYIM.

"In every generation one must look upon himself as if he personally had gone out of Egypt ." (Pesachim 116b)

Some 3300 years ago Hashem delivered us from Egypt , from slavery to freedom.

And if Hashem had not taken us out of Egypt then, we would still be slaves there now.

That is why we thank G-d every day all over again for our freedom, and we promise in our heart to use our liberty in the best possible way, chosen servants of the King of kings.

4. KOL YISROEL YEISH LOHEM CHEILEK L'OLOM HA'BOH, SHENE'EMAR V'AMEICH KOOLUM TZADIKKIM, L'OLOM YIRSHOO ORETZ, NEITZER MATO'AIY MA'ASEI YO-DYE L'HISPOER.

"All Israel have a share in the World To Come, as it is stated (Isaiah

60:21): 'And Your people are tzadikkim (righteous).' They shall inherit the land forever. They are the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, in which I take pride." (Sanhedrin 90a)

-d takes special pride in each and every Jew. He created us, and He cares for us, and watches over us like a gardener who watches over a tender plant. As we grow, learning His Torah and doing the wonderful Mitzvos in it, G-d prepares for us a place in the World To Come, beside Avraham, Yitzchok, Yaakov, Moshe, King David and all the great Jewish people in our history.

5. KEE KOROV AILECHO HADOVOR ME'OD B'FEECHO U'VIL'VOV'CHO LA'ASOSO.

"It is within your close reach to follow the Torah in speech, feeling and deed." (Deuteronomy. 30:14) (As explained in the Tanya)

You know, the Torah is not in Heaven!

It's right here on earth, easy for us to learn to follow, It's as near as the shul on the corner, the book in my hand, the verse I'm now learning by heart, the happiness I feel deep-down inside, In fact, Torah is what I really, really want. That's how Hashem made me.

6. V'HEENEI HASHEM NEETZOV OLOV UMELO CHOL HO-ORETZ KEVODO UMABIT OLOV UVOCHAIN KLOYOS VOLEIV IM OVDO KORO-OOY.

"G-d stands over him, and the whole earth is full of His glory, and he searches his mind and heart (to see) if he is serving Him as is fitting." (Tanya, Chapter 41)

Imagine you were in the palace of a king. The rooms, the walls, the gorgeous furniture - all around, everything is splendid. Princes and rulers, dressed in gold and silver, stand about in awe, waiting to do the king's command, or even just to see him, You pass amongst them all, and suddenly find yourself...before the king! No one says a word. The king is looking right at you, watching with interest as you come near. Imagine how you would feel!

In fact, that is exactly how we do stand all the time before Hashem, the king of all the world!

7. BERAISHIS BORO ELO-HIM EIS HA-SHOMAYIM VE-EIS HO-ORETZ.

"In the beginning G-d created the heavens and the earth." (Genesis 1:1)

G-d created the whole world: the heavens and everything in them; the earth and everything on the earth. This is the very first thing the Torah tells us.

So if we are ever frightened by the dark, or storm, or cold, or noise, or man, and nothing seems to be the way it should, the Torah tells us not to be afraid. Hashem created the whole world, and He is taking care of it; and He gave us the Torah to make things be the way they should. The Torah tells us just what we should do, and how we can make everything good and holy. And when G-d in Heaven sees that we are good, He sends us blessings and success.

"And you shall teach the Torah to your children, and you should speak about it when you are home and when you travel, before you lie down to sleep and when you wake up." (Deuteronomy. 6:7)

Torah tells our parents: "Daddy, Mommy teach ME to your children! I want them to know MY holy words!"

We should tell our parents too: "Daddy, Mommy, wouldn't you like to do the greatest and best thing of all for me? Then please teach me Torah.

"Teach me with love and care, until the verses reach into my heart and mind, and I remember them whether I'm at home or on the way somewhere, whether I'm going to sleep, or when I wake up."

If we ask from the heart, the way we know to ask for things we really want, they'll surely listen to us, and send us to a camp that is run the Torah way, and to a school where we can learn Torah, Mitzvos and Yiddishkeit.

9. YOGATEE VELO MOTZOSEE AL TA'AMIN. LO YOGATEE U'MOTZOSEE AL TA'AMIN. YOGATEE U'MOTZOSEE TA'AMIN.

If someone says, "I have worked hard, and I have not been successful," don't believe him. If someone says, "I have not worked hard and I have been successful," don't believe him. If someone says, "I have worked hard, and I have been successful," believe him!!! (Megilla, 6b)

If we should think that once upon a time we did something not quite the way it should have been done, and so we don't feel strong enough to carry on in learning Torah and doing Mitzvos, then we should remember Hashem's promise to us: If we try harder now, again, with all our might, then surely we will succeed. And we will find more, much more than ever we had dreamed.

10. VE-O-HAVTO LE-REI-ACHO KO-MO-CHO RA'BI AKIVO OMEIR ZEH KLOL GODOL BA-TORAH.

Rabbi Akiva says that, "To love your fellow as yourself," is a great basic principle of the Torah. (Leviticus 19:18, Midrash)

s we work hard to make ourselves better people, we should not forget about our friends and neighbors. As Rabbi Akiva said, we should love our fellow just like ourselves, That s the main point of what we learn. And so, if we are lucky enough to be able to learn Torah, we should also work just as hard to help our Jewish friends, so that they can learn Torah too.

"The purpose of the creation of every Jew and of all the worlds is to make a dwelling place for G-d in this world." (Tanya, Chapter 33)

The reason why G-d made each Jew and why He created the whole world, is so that by following Torah and Mitzvos, we can make ourselves, and our homes, and the world around us a dwelling place for G-d, where He will live, just as we live in our own homes.

"The Jews should rejoice in their Maker. Every Jew should share in G-d's joy, Who rejoices and is happy in His dwelling place in this world." (Tanya, Chapter 33)

Every Jew, no matter what sort of background or learning he or she has had until now, even until a minute ago, so long as he is a Jew, he is a member of the Jewish people; and he should be happy and proud that Hashem has given him the special and greatest mission he could have -- to make himself, his home, and the world around a place where G-d is found.
