IN THE COMMUNITY
Let's Celebrate Jerusalem, not Sinai
When it comes to real estate we've all been told: location, location, location.  Yet, many of the greatest things in life transcend space or time. Perhaps for this reason, the Torah rarely mentions the location that Laws were transmitted. There is once exception - the Laws of the Sabbatical year.  Here the Torah emphasizes that they were given at Sinai.  Since most others laws were given there as as well, why single these out?

Every seventh year , the field of Israel were to remain fallow.  No other law is rooted in the Land of Israel more than the Sabbatical year where the actual soil rests.  As we stood at Sinai, at the dawn of Jewish history, God told us to keep our eye on the goal - Zion and Jerusalem.  

At the conclusion of the Sabbatical year, the King of Israel would gather the nation at a ritual called "Hakhel." In Jerusalem, he would recreate the Sinai experience by imparting words of Torah.  This ceremony was not a reenactment of an historic event but rather the apex of a process.  At Sinai we received our mission to be a Light unto Nations with Jerusalem as our epicentre. 

In truth, we could care less where Sinai is. It's merely a station not a destination.  As Isaiah (2:3) describes: "From Zion shall emanate Torah and the Word of God from Jerusalem."  Let us remember this as we celebrate 50 miraculous years!
