The 10 Commandments display developed from an idea by Macalester’s Rabbi Bernie Raskas. Rabbi Raskas presented the proposal to President McPerhson who agreed to housing the display in the library. The display was funded by a gift from Jane and David A. Berg, and is on permanent loan from the Temple of Aaron Synagogue. It consists of two stone tablets each with five Commandments in ancient Hebrew, and versions of the Ten Commandments in Peshitta (Aramaic), Latin, Greek, old Hebrew, and modern Hebrew. Please see brochures next to the display for more information.
