Biblical Faith – with Sam Peak
Inner Dimension Parshiyot studies available Sunday-Friday.
The major topic of this week’s Torah Parsha is the sin of the golden calf, which is considered the worst sin of the Jewish people. The commentaries explain that the people did not intend to create a substitute for God. Rather they substituted a false leader–the calf–for Moses, whom they mistakenly believed had abandoned them. Thus, the archetypical sin of the people as a whole is following false leadership.
