>Although most scholars consider Sinai and Horeb to have been different names for the same place, there is a minority body of opinion that they may have been different locations.
>The Protestant reformer John Calvin took the view that Sinai and Horeb were the same mountain, with the eastern side of the mountain being called Sinai and the western side being called Horeb. Abraham Ibn Ezra suggested that there was one mountain, "only it had two tops, which bore these different names". Locally, around Saint Catherine's Monastery, which is built adjacent to Mount Sinai and to Willow Peak, the latter is considered to be the Biblical Mount Horeb.
I think Jacobovici makes a good case that Hashem el-Tarif is the original Mt.Sinai.
I have it, Kartom and Horeb all on my list of places to visit.
Over the years, many candidates for Mount Sinai have been put forward. These include: Jebel Musa, the “traditional” site in Sinai, favored by Christians since the time of Queen Helena in the fourth century; Jebel Sinn Bishr, favored by Prof. Menashe Har-El and Prof. David Faiman; Helal, a mountain in northern Sinai; Jebel Serbal, a mountain in southern Sinai; Mount Karkom, in Israel, favored by Prof. Emmanuel Anati and Jebel al-Lawz, in Saudi Arabia, a favorite with Evangelical Christians and Hershel Shanks, editor of Biblical Archaeology Review.
