Torah Study: Listening for the Sacred
"On the Way to Sinai" artwork by Yoram Raanan
“All of the people saw the thunderings and heard the lightnings and the sound of the shofar and the mountain smoking.”
Revelation at Mount Sinai is Judaism's "peak" experience, the foundation of sacred community.
Our tradition offers that all souls were present at Sinai and heard God with 70 voices. What was heard and how did/how do we respond to that revelation?
We'll listen to Torah to hear some of those sacred voices, including Kabbalistic readings of Bereishit (Genesis). The Sefer Yetzirah (the Book of Formation) - the oldest and most mysterious of Kabbalistic texts - will supply us with some interesting perspectives and meditative orientations.
"'The thunderings' - God's voice, as it was uttered, split into seventy voices, in seventy languages." Exodus Rabbah 5:9
