Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, “Why Only Two Daddy?”
The father goes on to explain that these are the commandments that G-d gave to the Jews (when they were redeemed from slavery in Egypt). He enumerates just two examples: keeping the Shabbat and honoring your mother and father. The son asks, ‘What are the other commandments?’ The father hesitates either not knowing any of the other commandments or simply unable to remember any more of them on the spot. And all of a sudden, the little boy starts wailing to his father: ‘Daddy, why do you know only two, why?’
Knowing the Torah and commandments is not only for ourselves to do what’s rights, but also to pass on the torch to the next generation. It’s not always easy to be good examples, but it’s the challenge we all face. 😉

Thank you to Congregation Magen David for a wonderful end of Passover party.
The family, new friends, music, singing, dancing, and food made for a truly joyous evening.
Happy and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it.
Now counting up to Shavuot and the giving of the Torah.
The Jewish people rock! 😉
