The fifth and final week of the Center for Jewish Life’s new Klutznick Learning Series, “What is it About the Ten Commandments?” meets this Monday, March 24, at 7 p.m. in the JCC Social Hall.

Rabbi Jonathan Gross and Dr. Michael Cohen examine “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy.” Dr. Cohen will talk about the importance of Shabbat in today’s world, focusing on how time as a family is so critical to both our physical and mental health, particularly for families with young children. The second half of the evening will feature Rabbi Mendel Katzman and C. David Kotok discussing “Thou shalt not covet anything that belongs to thy neighbor.” Kotok, a retired journalist will focus on the idea that “in the world of politics, thou covets.”

The series is open to the community, free of charge and is sponsored by the fund of the Klutznick Chair of Jewish Civilization at Creighton University.
