The Jewish people made an crucial stop

on their way through the desert to



And what happened there? We are still

debating that amongst ourselves, but

Avraham thinks that we made three commitments; to recognize one God; to

make the world a better place for all

people; and to use certain rituals to define and shape Jewish time and space.

So, for Jews who observe any or all of the mitzvot, and those who are committed to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), and those who serve the Jewish community, or move to Israel, the covenant established at Mount Sinai is still a tie that binds.

Something happened at Mount Sinai

TIKKUN OLAM (Repairing the World)

  • What has to be the Jewish vision in terms of  responsibility of being Jewish?
  • What could be the 10 commandments of Jewish identity
  • Is there “Two worlds of Judaism”?  – Israeli and Diaspora Judaism.  
  • Am Segula and/or Or Lagoyim?  
  • Authority in Judaism: who defines my Jewish identity and my Jewish responsibilities – God, my community, Jewish history or memory, myself, Western culture, the government of Israel….?
