lets end this discussion i think its better for me to use any extra time i have to try and learn more of the Torah hakdosho, i suggest the same to you as this discussion is not going anywhere.
we all have the potentia of becoming great in torah and lets all fulfill that potential, we just have to do one thing.
he told me personally that he only worked on this book outide seder for example bien hazmanim.
@poshteryid IF you would have read my previous posts, you would know that i made a typo, alexandrA instead of alexandER. however, you clearly didn’t and therefore have publicly insulted a talmid chochom. Just saying.
***i know i said i was leaving CR, but i just wanted to clear that point up.
IM TERRIBLY SORRY, for being so violent on this coffee room in particular to keeto123 and justanotherposhuteryid. i hope you all forgive me. i was wrong how were you meant to know that he was orthedox. i think i should leave this discussion as i take it to personal and i am a bit to aggresive for a coffee room. kol tov
anyway i dont understand any suggestions as to where the mountain is as the medrash says har sinai was 500 amos which is around 247 metres. are you trying to tell me that the mountains suggested fit those measurements.
however the holy scholar mentioned above Rabbi Alexander Hool locates a mountain which must be the real loction as this problem amongst many other ones are solved.
How dare you ask that. OF COURSE.
he is an outstanding talmd chocham i have met him personally. he learnt in gateshead yeshivah for many years and has been in ponevezh kollel for over 20 YEARS. he is the author of The challenge of Jewish history a best seller which recieved a haskama from rav belsky. he has written other seforim and recieved other haskamas from gedolim including reb moshe sturnbuch!
kvod hatorah pls apologize.
what has been stated above about the top of the mountain being black from the shechinah, is highly uncompelling in my opinion and the opinion of RABBI ALEXANDER HOOL .
the shechinah was a spiritual fire it would not burn the mountain just like by the burning bush the bush wasnt being consumed.
@littleiknow”-There is no residual kedusha on Har Sinai”
i dont understand you if there is no kedusha at all can you pls xplain to me why in melochim the posuk tells us that Eliyahu hanavi runs to mount Sinai to escape people chasing him could he have not found another mountain. i certainly disagree with you.
dear anyone who says they know where har sinai is because they found the special stones that when cut in half……….in particular keeto.
THERE IS A WHOLE REGION OF MOUNTAINS WITH THAT STONE CHARACTERISTICS.
Again, please stop yelling. We hear you just fine.
He proves it must be in Saudi Arabia. one obvious proof why it cant be the common jabal mussa in the Sinai peninsula is the first posuk in beshalach. There the posuk clearly writes that Hashem was going to bring them the nearest way to isreal, obviously passing mount Sinai along the way, however this commonly accepted mountain is no where near along the way. Anyway keeto123 i recommend you buy the book.
Please stop yelling.

sorry kovod hatorah i mean RABBI ALEXANDER HOOL with an ER
listen here Jewish brethren, i personally have read the book mentioned above SEARCHING FOR SINAI BY RABBI ALEXANDRA HOOL and in it, the author tears apart literally tears apart some of the suggestions which have been mentioned above as to where the mountain is. In addition he provides mind blowing proofs to a completely new location of Mount Sinai THE REAL ONE. I have personally had discussions with the author, he is a prominent Torah scholar having been in learning for years, and he really knows what he is talking about. I highly recommend the book for anyone interested in the topic.
