You may already know that the giving of the Torah -- which we celebrate on the holiday of Shavuot -- took place at Sinai. But what is Sinai? The Torah speaks of a wilderness called Sinai as well as a mountain by the same name. What is the difference between the desert and the mountain? And how does that shape our understanding of what happened there years ago?

your lectures I so much enjoy your lectures. What I don't like is your Yiddish connotation when you use Hebrew words. The sound of the Yiddish Hebrew is terrible for someone who speaks Hebrew well. Also the Yiddish expressions are not really necessary. Reply
