Ten Commandments Day: Mark Your Calendars

Abstract: May 6 is Ten Commandments Day. What does this mean?

The Ten Commandments Commission informs us that the 2nd Annual Ten Commandments Day will be May 6, 2007. We were surprised by this: we thought people had been celebrating the Ten Commandments for thousands of years on Shavuot (observed fifty days after Passover, May 23 this year), the celebration of the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai. We tend to celebrate the Ten Commandments on the Christian festival of Pentecost (since the giving of the Spirit coincided with Shavuot). Nevertheless, on May 6 we will dutifully ask, as we do every day, "What does this mean?"
