Hope you’re having a great day.
… The Hebrew school teacher was determined.
She was going to get the kids to remember the names of the “Five Books of Moses”.
“Who can list all five”?
One kid starts waiving his hand, “I know. I know!
It’s… Genesis. And um… um… Exodus.
And wait. I know. Don’t tell me…
… It’s a cute story.
But in a way?
As Jews, we all drive a “Lexus”.
Because Jewish tradition says that when G-d gave us the Torah at Mount Sinai?
He gave us the keys to the world and told us…
Our mission is to make this the kind of world that G-d wants it too be.
What we call a “Light unto the Nations”.
And to do that we need proud and knowledgeable Jews!
… And that’s why this is not a Torah Minute but a Torah Ten Seconds!
But it’s a Minute about the Chicago Torah Network!
I’m taking a minute to ask you to support CTN. To enable us continue to make a difference for Jewish continuity.
I am especially appealing to the entire ‘Torah Minute family’.
To each and every reader of the CTN Torah Minute.
… To you!

This year-end campaign is crucial for us.
There is so much concern today about the Jewish future. About so many Jews not being involved. And about the need to make Judaism meaningful and relevant to Jews of all backgrounds.
Some people think we can’t turn things around.
But CTN believes in the power of our Torah to inspire. And we’ve seen it happen so many times.
You can help us continue our work.
And if you have already responded, thank you very much!
All the best,
