What Really Happened At Sinai?
By Professor Benjamin Sommer of JTS
16 July 2017
Professor Sommer focuses on the theologically significant ambiguities in Exodus 19-20 and how they give rise to an interpretive debate that begins in Deuteronomy 4-5 and continues through midrashic literature, the medieval commentators and into Hasidism and modern Jewish thought. This powerful lecture by a renowned scholar addresses our contemporary questions about the nature of Torah and the status of Halacha.
