  1. Yes, they are. Mount Sinai actually has seven names and each name reveals a different dimension to the mountain.

    (1) Har HaElokim
    (2) Har Bashan
    (3) Har Gavnunim
    (4) Har Chorev (Horeb)
    (5) Har Sinai
    (6) Har Chemed
    (7) Har Moriah

    We do not know where Mount Sinai is located.
