New York Rabbi to Carve Tablets at Mt. Sinai for His Congregation

Rabbi Theodore Ross, spiritual leader of Temple Sinai in Queens, New York, will leave next week for Egypt in order to climb Mount Sinai. Rabbi Ross plans to select stone tablets there on which the Ten Commandments will be inscribed and then flown back to New York where they will be placed in Temple Sinai’s sanctuary on either side of the Ark. Rabbi Ross has received an entry visa from the Egyptian Government.
