BJC Learning-in-Place Study Guide

We are deeply grateful to the 40 individuals who contributed words of Parshanut (commentary) to our study guide on the verses of the Ten Commandments in Sefer Shemot. Thank you to Todd Wilkof who led this incredible effort. Don’t forget to print out copies before the Chag begins and enjoy with your late-night or all-night learning, or throughout the Chag!
