The modern 10 Commandments
Tonight marks the first night of Passover. Those of you who know the origins of the holiday will recall that it commemorates the departure of the Jewish people, en masse, from Egypt after 400 years of being enslaved there. This year my attention turns to what is perhaps the seminal moment in the entire story; the granting of The Ten Commandments. Rules to live by. I doubt I am alone in thinking that maybe they need to be expanded a little. So, with no disrespect intended towards the original version, I offer my updated version of the Ten Commandments for the year 2016.
