Headlines tell a powerful tale. These headlines were foretold by the events at Sinai, 3330 years ago.
“Iran vs. Israel: Is a Major War Coming?” So asks a May 14 headline in The Atlantic.
“Trump Abandons Iran Nuclear Deal He Long Scorned,” goes the May 8 New York Times headline.
“Religion A Large Presence As U.S. Embassy Opens In Jerusalem,” announces the May 14 National Public Radio (NPR) headline.
“Trump announces June 12 summit in Singapore with North Korean leader, U.S. prisoners released,” reads the May 10 Washington Post headline.
3330 years ago G-d offered the Torah to the children of Esau (the West) and the children of Ishmael (the East). They rejected the deal. The Jews, bridge between east and west, accepted the Torah at Sinai.
Sinai built a bridge between heaven above and earth below. Sinai, and we the Jewish people, contain the power to build the bridge between the Western countries, with the United States at it helm, and the East, represented by the volatile Iran.
Sinai is relevant today more than ever.
Perhaps these headlines are signs of a bright future.
