Learning and living with our Core Values promotes healthier and happier individuals, families, communities and a better world.

You are probably familiar with the Ten Commandments as the most basic rules of morality. Project Aseret will show you how each one contains profound values which relate to the entirety of life. We are revealing the power of the Aseret HaDibrot by understanding them in a broad and all-encompassing way.

The Ten Commandments, in Hebrew the Aseret HaDibrot, is both the anchor and the compass of the Jewish People.  The most significant text ever written, heard directly from God by the entire Jewish people and hewn into stone tablets, they carry the simple and profound answers to who we are, what we stand for, and our mission.


CORE VALUES - the foundational principles, beliefs, and standards of behavior which guide our decisions and behavior, regardless of the challenges we face.

We understand The TEN COMMANDMENTS as Core Values when we approach each DIBER on Two Levels.


The simple understanding of the commandment as a Core Value is an anchor. It grounds us with a clear standard of behavior.  


The underlying meaning of the commandment is a compass. It points us in the direction we should go and reveals the values we truly want to live by.


Our goal is to share a realistic and applicable understanding of the Ten Commandments as Core Values.
