Mount Sinai Temple (Sioux City, Iowa)
Mount Sinai Temple was a Reform synagogue located in Sioux City, United States. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. There were Jews living in Sioux City as early as the 1860s, but a synagogue was not built in the city until 1884. Adas Jeshurun was an Orthodox congregation; the Jewish community in Sioux City grew from 200 in 1890 to nearly 2,500 by World War I. Sioux City was home to the second largest Jewish community in the state of Iowa at the time. Mount Sinai Temple was established in 1901; the synagogue, which opened the same year, was expanded in 1922. The building was designed in the Prairie School style. Between World Wars I and II the Jewish Community Center in Sioux City hosted 60 to 70 clubs and organizations that ranged from socialist workers to Zionists. A one-mile section of West Seventh Street was home to 22 Jewish owned businesses in 1944. After World War II the Jewish community in Sioux City began to decline. By the mid 1980s the population was down to 700 people, by 2001 it was down to 300.
The Jewish congregations in Sioux City combined their religious schools in 1990. Four years the congregations themselves merged at Beth Shalom, the Conservative synagogue
Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Mount Sinai School of Medicine, is a graduate medical school in Manhattan, New York City. Chartered by Mount Sinai Hospital in 1963, ISMMS is the teaching arm of the Mount Sinai Health System, which includes eight hospital campuses in the New York metropolitan area, it is one of the foremost medical schools in the United States, ranking 18th in the country for biomedical research. In 2018, it attracted over $348.5 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health alone. Admission is competitive. In 2018, the school matriculated 140 students from 6,156 applicants for its MD program; the first official proposal for the establishment of a medical school was made to Mount Sinai Hospital's trustees in January 1958. The school's philosophy was defined by Hans Popper, Horace Hodes, Alexander Gutman, Paul Klemperer, George Baehr, Gustave L. Levy, Alfred Stern, among others. Milton Steinbach was the school's first president. In 1968, Mount Sinai School of Medicine commenced its first class and soon became known as one of the leading medical schools in the U.
S. with Mount Sinai Hospital gaining recognition for its laboratories and advances in patient care and the discovery of diseases. The City University of New York granted Mount Sinai's degrees; the architecture of ISMMS was designed by I. M. Pei. In 1999, Mount Sinai changed university affiliations from City University to New York University but did not merge its operations with the New York University School of Medicine; this affiliation change took place as part of the merger in 1998 of Mount Sinai and NYU medical centers to create the Mount Sinai-NYU Medical Center and Health System. In 2007, Mount Sinai Medical Center's Boards of Trustees approved the termination of the academic affiliation between Mount Sinai and NYU. In 2010, Mount Sinai was accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and became an independent degree-granting institution. On November 14, 2012, it was announced that Mount Sinai School of Medicine would be renamed Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in honor of New York businessman and philanthropist Carl Icahn.
In August 2016, Dennis S. Charney, the Dean of the medical school, was shot and wounded as he left a deli in his home town of Chappaqua, New York. Hengjun Chao, a former Mount Sinai faculty member, fired for research misconduct in 2010, was arrested and charged with attempted murder. Chao was convicted of attempted second degree murder and two other charges in June 2017. ISMMS's medical curriculum is based on the standard division of medical education in the United States: the first two years of study are confined to the medical sciences, the latter to the study of clinical sciences; the first and second years are pass/fail. ISMMS's quadruplet missions follow the "commitment of serving science," and the majority of students take part in some aspect of community service; this participation includes The East Harlem Health Outreach Partnership, developed by the students of Mount Sinai to create a health partnership with the East Harlem community, providing quality health care, regardless of ability to pay, to uninsured residents of East Harlem.
Since 1987, the ISMMS has featured a unique early-admissions program, The Humanities and Medicine Program, which guaranteed students admitted to the program a place in the medical school. These students, known colloquially as "HuMeds," applied during the fall of their sophomore year in college or university and did not take the Medical College Admission Test. HuMeds made up about 25% of each year's ISMMS medical class. In 2013, the Humanities and Medicine program was expanded into the FlexMed program. Students admitted to the ISMMS via FlexMed will be able to pursue any major and will be required to take additional coursework in ethics and health policy in lieu of or in addition to several of the traditional pre-med requirements; the school plans to recruit half of each incoming class through the FlexMed program. ISMMS's student body is diverse, consisting of 53.6 % women. Individual educational programs are accredited through the appropriate bodies, including but not limited to LCME, CEPH, ACCME and ACGME.
All degree-granting programs are registered with the New York State Department of Education. ISMMS publishes the Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine: A Journal of Translational and Personalized Medicine six times a year. ISMMS was ranked 18th overall among research-based medical schools in the 2019 edition of U. S. News & World Report. ISMMS was ranked 13th among medical schools in the U. S. receiving NIH grants in 2017, 2nd in research dollars per principal investigator among U. S. medical schools by the Association of American Medical Colleges. ISMMS was the first U. S. medical school to establish a Department of Geriatrics in 1982. ISMMS's PhD program was ranked 3rd among 53 U. S. institutions in a survey conducted by Academic Analytics in 2008 and 7th on the organization’s list of top 20 specialized research universities in biomedical health sciences. The Scientist magazine ranked ISMMS 15th overall in its 2009 “Best Places to Work in Academia” survey. According to an American Medical Student Association survey, ISMMS is one of eight medical schools in the U.
S. to receive an "A" for its conflicts of interest policies relating to pharmaceutical industry marketing. ISMMS received the Association of American Medical Colleges Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service in
The Sinai Peninsula or Sinai is a peninsula in Egypt, the only part of the country located in Asia. It is situated between the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the south, is a land bridge between Asia and Africa. Sinai has a land area of about 60,000 km2 and a population of 1,400,000 people. Administratively, the Sinai Peninsula is divided into two governorates: the South Sinai Governorate and the North Sinai Governorate. Three other governorates span the Suez Canal, crossing into African Egypt: Suez Governorate on the southern end of the Suez Canal, Ismailia Governorate in the center, Port Said Governorate in the north; the Sinai Peninsula has been a part of Egypt from the First Dynasty of ancient Egypt. This comes in stark contrast to the region north of it, the Levant, due to its strategic geopolitical location and cultural convergences, has been the center of conflict between Egypt and various states of Mesopotamia and Asia Minor. In periods of foreign occupation, the Sinai was, like the rest of Egypt occupied and controlled by foreign empires, in more recent history the Ottoman Empire and the United Kingdom.
Israel invaded and occupied Sinai during the Suez Crisis of 1956, during the Six-Day War of 1967. On 6 October 1973, Egypt launched the Yom Kippur War to retake the peninsula, unsuccessful. In 1982, as a result of the Israel–Egypt Peace Treaty of 1979, Israel withdrew from all of the Sinai Peninsula except the contentious territory of Taba, returned after a ruling by a commission of arbitration in 1989. Today, Sinai has become a tourist destination due to its natural setting, rich coral reefs, biblical history. Mount Sinai is one of the most religiously significant places in the Abrahamic faiths; the name Sinai may have been derived from the ancient moon-god Sin or from the Hebrew word Seneh The peninsula acquired the name due to the assumption that a mountain near Saint Catherine's Monastery is the Biblical Mount Sinai. However this assumption is contested, its modern Arabic name is سِينَاء Sīnāʼ. The modern Arabic is an adoption of the biblical name, the 19th-century Arabic designation of Sinai was Jebel el-Tûr.
In addition to its formal name, Egyptians refer to it as Arḍ ul-Fairūz. The ancient Egyptians called it Ta Mefkat, or'land of turquoise'. In English, the name is now pronounced; the traditional pronunciation is or. Sinai is triangular in shape, with northern shore lying on the southern Mediterranean Sea, southwest and southeast shores on Gulf of Suez and Gulf of Aqaba of the Red Sea, it is linked to the African continent by the Isthmus of Suez, 125 kilometres wide strip of land, containing the Suez Canal. The eastern isthmus, linking it to the Asian mainland, is around 200 kilometres wide; the peninsula's eastern shore separates the Arabian plate from the African plate. The southernmost tip is the Ras Muhammad National Park. Most of the Sinai Peninsula is divided among the two governorates of Egypt: South Sinai and North Sinai. Together, they comprise around 60,000 square kilometres and have a population of 597,000. Three more governates span the Suez Canal, crossing into African Egypt: Suez is on the southern end of the Suez Canal, Ismailia in the centre, Port Said in the north.
The largest city of Sinai is capital of the North Sinai, with around 160,000 residents. Other larger settlements include Sharm El-Tor, on the southern coast. Inland Sinai is arid and sparsely populated, the largest settlements being Saint Catherine and Nekhel. Sinai is one of the coldest provinces in Egypt because of its high altitudes and mountainous topographies. Winter temperatures in some of Sinai's cities and towns reach −16 °C. Sinai was called Mafkat by the ancient Egyptians From the time of the First Dynasty or before, the Egyptians mined turquoise in Sinai at two locations, now called by their Egyptian Arabic names Wadi Magharah and Serabit El Khadim; the mines were worked intermittently and on a seasonal basis for thousands of years. Modern attempts to exploit; these may be the first attested mines. The fortress Tjaru in western Sinai was a place of banishment for Egyptian criminals; the Way of Horus connected it across northern Sinai with ancient Canaan. At the end of the time of Darius I, the Great Sinai was part of the Persian province of Abar-Nahra, which means'beyond the river'.
Cambyses managed the crossing of the hostile Sinai Desert, traditionally Egypt's first and strongest line of defence, brought the Egyptians under Psamtik III, son and successor of Ahmose, to battle at Pelusium. The Egyptians retired to Memphis. Rhinocorura and the eponymous region around it were used by Ptolemaid Egypt as a place of banishment for criminals. After the death of the last Nabatean king, Rabbel II Soter, in 106, the Roman emperor Trajan faced no resistance and conquered the kingdom on 22 March 106. With this conquest, the Roman Empire went on to control all shores of the Mediterranean Sea
Mount Sinai, New York
Mount Sinai is a hamlet and census-designated place located within the Town of Brookhaven in Suffolk County, New York, United States. The population was 12,118 at the 2010 census; the hamlet is located on the North Shore of Long Island, is served by the Mount Sinai School District and the Mount Sinai Fire Department, founded on October 25, 1930. The Mount Sinai Fire District covers 5.5 square miles including the Mount Sinai Harbor and parts of the Long Island Sound. Mount Sinai's ZIP code is 11766. Mount Sinai was first settled in the 1660s and was known by the name of Old Mans until a name change in the 1840s. An agricultural hamlet, it transitioned into a popular resort town in the late-19th century and developed into a suburb of New York City in the mid-20th century. While a residential community, the hamlet contains Mount Sinai Harbor and its popular public beach, Cedar Beach. Mount Sinai was founded in the 1660s. More 1664 The area now known as Mount Sinai was called Nonowatuck, or "stream that dries up", by the Seatocot family of Native Americans who lived here.
The first European settlers were Colonial settlers living in what is now Setauket, who obtained a deed from these local Native Americans in 1664. The origin of the town's initial European name, "Old Mans", is not known; the most prominent telling concerns Major John Gotherson, an elderly Englishman, swindled into incorrectly believing he'd bought land in the New World by Captain John Scott, an important leader in Long Island's early history. After Gotherson sent representatives who were turned away, local residents started to jokingly refer to the land as "the Old Mans". During the American Revolution, the area and Old Mans Harbor were under British control. However, because of its remote location the British did not have troops stationed here. Many citizens moved their families to Connecticut during British occupation. During the course of the war, American agents visited local patriots and received information, clothing and money to support the cause. In 1780, American Major Benjamin Tallmadge and a detachment of Continental Army dragoons landed at Cedar Beach and traveled south to attack the British at Manor St. George.
The route he and his men took is now marked as a historic trail. Building of houses occurred in spurts. Most building occurred within a mile of the harbor. Few houses were built south of North Country Road until the late 19th century. Much of the land south of North Country Road was cultivated by farmers. There is no known 17th-century structure still standing; the 18th century is represented by six buildings dating from 1705 to 1790. Certain of these homes have structural elements; the 19th century has the largest number of surviving historical structures. These can be divided into two periods, 1880-1890s. Again, some of these buildings incorporated structural elements of earlier periods. In 1840 the people of Old Mans applied for a post office. Evidently Old Mans was not considered a proper name for the area; the name was changed to Mount Vernon. This name was used for only a year as there was a Mount Vernon in New York. Old Mans was used once again; the name Mount Sinai, after the biblical mountain, was chosen by the first postmaster, Charles Phillips.
Local legend says. Mount Sinai is the name residents have used since 1841/1842. In addition to the farmland that populated Old Mans, the town's trees provided much of the wood for the shipbuilding trade centered in neighboring Port Jefferson. A shipyard existed in Old Mans for a time, but this was moved to the deeper harbor of Port Jefferson. Riggers, sail-makers, ship carpenters and others lived in Mount Sinai and commuted to Port Jefferson. Grist mills were located somewhere along Pipe Stave Crystal Brook Hollow roads. Records indicate; as the population expanded, a number of businesses were established along Route 25A. A commercial center did not develop in Mount Sinai and residents depended on businesses in the neighboring village of Port Jefferson. Once the Long Island Rail Road reached adjacent Port Jefferson in 1879, temporarily continued into Mount Sinai from 1895-1939, new visitors and residents began appearing from New York City and from elsewhere on Long Island in order to enjoy the hamlet's beaches and bucolic setting.
The development of Mount Sinai for its natural and recreational qualities had begun with the 1841 establishment of a special care facility for sick and disabled children on the southwestern side of Mount Sinai Harbor. This consisted of housing and volunteer workers on a 130-acre plot, with the location being chosen due to its close proximity to St. Charles Hospital in adjacent Port Jefferson. On April 2, 1892, this parcel was sold to Dr. Jerome Walker, who established the Crystal Brook Park Association, still owned and occupied today by Mount Sinai's oldest private community known as Crystal Brook Park. Seasonal vacation houses were erected along Mount Sinai Harbor. Cedar Beach, located on a peninsula that divides the harbor from the Long Island Sound, became a popular recreational destination; the Chandler Estate, on Mount Sinai Harbor's southern side, was repurposed as vacation cottages and housed Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller during their holidays in the 1950s. In the first half of the 20th century the pace of building slowed.
Although large tracts of farmland persisted, there were small pockets of development around the hamlet. Examples of these are the "colony" of homes bui
Mount Sinai known as Mount Horeb or Gabal Musa, is a mountain in the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt, a possible location of the biblical Mount Sinai, considered a holy site by the Abrahamic religions. Mount Sinai is mentioned many times in the Book of Exodus and other books of the Bible, the Quran. According to Jewish and Islamic tradition, the biblical Mount Sinai was the place where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Mount Sinai is a 2,285-metre moderately high mountain near the city of Saint Catherine in the Sinai region, it is next to Mount Catherine. It is surrounded on all sides by higher peaks of the mountain range. Mount Sinai's rocks were formed in the late stage of the Arabian-Nubian Shield's evolution. Mount Sinai displays a ring complex that consists of alkaline granites intruded into diverse rock types, including volcanics; the granites range in composition from syenogranite to alkali feldspar granite. The volcanic rocks are alkaline to peralkaline and they are represented by subaerial flows and eruptions and subvolcanic porphyry.
The nature of the exposed rocks in Mount Sinai indicates that they originated from differing depths. The biblical Mount Sinai is one of the most important sacred places in the Jewish and Islamic religions. According to the Hebrew Bible, it was the mountain. However, the earliest Christian traditions place this event at the nearby Mount Serbal, at the foot of which a monastery was founded in the 4th century; the earliest references to Jebel Musa as Mount Sinai or Mount Sinai being located in the present-day Sinai peninsula are inconclusive. There is evidence that prior to 100 CE, well before the Christian monastic period, Jewish sages equated Jebel Musa with Mount Sinai. Graham Davies of Cambridge University argues that early Jewish pilgrimages identified Jebel Musa as Mount Sinai and this identification was adopted by the Christian pilgrims. R. K. Harrison states that "Jebel Musa... seems to have enjoyed special sanctity long before Christian times, culminating in its identification with Mt. Sinai."Christians settled upon this mountain in the third century AD.
Georgians from the Caucasus moved to the Sinai Peninsula in the fifth century, a Georgian colony was formed there in the ninth century. Georgians erected their own churches in the area of the modern Mount Sinai; the construction of one such church was connected with the name of David The Builder, who contributed to the erection of churches in Georgia and abroad as well. There were political and religious motives for locating the church on Mount Sinai. Georgian monks living there were connected with their motherland; the church had its own plots in Kartli. Some of the Georgian manuscripts of Sinai remain there, but others are kept in Tbilisi, St. Petersburg, New York City, Paris, or in private collections; some modern biblical scholars now believe that the Israelites would have crossed the Sinai peninsula in a direct route, rather than detouring to the southern tip, therefore look for the biblical Mount Sinai elsewhere. According to some scholars, the Song of Deborah suggests that God dwelt at Mount Seir, so many scholars favour a location in Nabatea.
Alternatively, the biblical descriptions of Sinai can be interpreted as describing a volcano, so a small number of scholars have considered equating Sinai with locations in northwestern Saudi Arabia, such as Jabal al-Lawz, as there are no volcanoes on the Sinai peninsula. Saint Catherine's Monastery lies on the Sinai Peninsula, at the mouth of an inaccessible gorge at the foot of modern Mount Sinai in Saint Catherine at an elevation of 1550 meters; the monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. According to the UNESCO report and website hereunder, this monastery has been called the oldest working Christian monastery in the world – although the Monastery of Saint Anthony, situated across the Red Sea in the desert south of Cairo lays claim to that title. There are two principal routes to the summit; the longer and shallower route, Siket El Bashait, takes about 2.5 hours on foot, though camels can be used. The steeper, more direct route is up the 3,750 "steps of penitence" in the ravine behind the monastery.
The summit of the mountain has a mosque, still used by Muslims. It has a Greek Orthodox chapel, constructed in 1934 on the ruins of a 16th-century church, not open to the public; the chapel encloses the rock, considered to be the source for the biblical Tablets of Stone. At the summit is "Moses' cave", where Moses was said to have waited to receive the Ten Commandments.
