Do you remember?

This week in the Torah we read Parshat Yitro, the story of Revelation.  Just forty-nine days after the crossing of the Sea of Reeds and Redemption, this emerging community is made into a covenantal community.  No longer will the Israelite people be connected by individuals with Divine experience (like Moses).  Now we’re a unified community with rules, laws and consequences.  Every time we read of the Sinai experience we’re reminded that every Jewish soul that ever will exist was present.  Do you remember what it was like?  I hope to spend Shabbat this week trying to do just that.

And because I try to have a sense of humor sometimes, for your viewing pleasure…
