Short thought

 

 And all the people saw the voices (20:15) They saw what is ordinarily heard and they heard what is ordinarily seen.

(Midrash Lekach Tov; Rashi)

As physical beings, we “see” physical reality. On the other hand, G-dliness and spirituality is only something that is “heard”–it can be discussed, perhaps even understood to some extent, but not experienced first hand.

At the revelation at Sinai, we saw what is ordinarily heard–we experienced the divine as an immediate, tangible reality. On the other hand, what is ordinarily “seen” –the material world–was something merely “heard,” to be accepted or rejected at will.

(The Lubavitcher Rebbe)

 

 

 

 

 

Humor

A Gabbai approaches a guest in the Shul and says, “I want to give you an Aliyah. What is your name?” he asks the man.
The man answers, “Sara bas Rachel.”
The Gabbai says, “No, I need your name.”
The man says, “It is Sara bas Rachel.”
The Gabbai asks, “How can that be your name?”
The man answers, “I’ve been having serious financial problems, so everything is in my wife’s name.”
 

Moshiach and the future Redemption

Hence, in a deeper sense, belief in the Redemption is belief in the supreme truth of the Torah.
