Experiencing Sinai – From Terror to Beauty and Love,
led by Rabbi David Thomas

In the Torah, the Revelation at Sinai filled the Israelites with fear and trembling.  The Midrash suggests the Jews were coerced into accepting God’s covenant at threat of death.  But in the mystical tradition of the Zohar, the experience is reframed as a love story between God and the Jewish people.  This is the origin of the Tikkun Leil Shavuot – when Jews prepare to receive the gift of Torah.  For the mystics, Revelation is filled with awe and wonder, transcendent beauty and supernal love.
