The Land of Israel: Land of Our Heritage: Horeb and Sinai:
Was Mount Horeb the same as Mount Sinai?
The Talmud (Shabbos 89) quotes different views about whether
Sinai or Horeb was the principal name of the mountain. It has
been suggested that since "Horeb" is mentioned many times, and
"Mount Horeb" only once (Ex.33:6), the word "Horeb" may refer
to an entire region, not just to a specific mountain.
