Temple Sinai students create their own ‘Kid Commandments’

While learning about Shavuot and the 10 Commandments, Temple Sinai in Cinnaminson students were encouraged to write their own 10 Commandments, based on what was “important” to them. Many of them stuck with some of the originals—and some newsworthy ones such as honor and respect your parents, don’t bully, have fun, and don’t vote for Donald Trump! Others were very creative. At the school, we selected some to share. Even though Shavuot has passed, these are words to “live by” and enjoy reading.
