A virtual tour of the Sinai Desert combined with tales from Midrashic literature with Rabbi David Russo and his brother, Israeli Tour Guide, Josh Hartuv. Josh will take us on a tour of St. Catherine’s Monastery of the Sinai Desert, traditionally the site of Mount Sinai. While journeying through the Sinai, we will delve into the lives of Israelites and others who lived there in ancient times.
Rabbi Russo will intertwine this with Midrashim about Sinai, the desert, and its connection to the upcoming Jewish holiday of Shavuot. These sites and stories are difficult for most people to see in real life – this virtual experience is a unique opportunity to explore these places and doesn’t require any mountain climbing.
