Parshat Yitro | Know your G-D
We will discuss this week portion Yitro | Know your God.
The historic event known as the Theophany at Mount Sinai is described in at least three places in the Torah,and information presented in one place does not appear in another.

This should come as no surprise, however, for we are dealing with a unique and unprecedented event: a public revelation of G-d before the eyes of an entire people. This one-time event is of supreme importance in several regards: religious, social, legal, and theological. Below we shall attempt to gain an understanding of its significance in each area.
