Putting the Ten Commandments on the Aron Kodesh


We are taught not to publish the Aseret haDibrot (Ten Commandments) in a standalone compilation or space, lest people view them as more important than the rest of the Torah. However, the practice of putting the first couple of words of each commandment on a plaque or parochet (curtain) on the Aron Kodesh (Ark) is permitted, since that doesn't include the entire text of the Commandments.

(Rabbi Ephraim Greenblatt, Rivivot Ephraim 1:3)

Have a great day,
