Shattered Tablets And The Calf Of Gold I (Part 1 of 12)

Shattered Tablets And The Calf Of Gold

Forty days after the Israelites receive the Torah and pledge undying loyalty to God, they suddenly turn away and begin to worship a false idol, a golden calf. It’s bizarre – and stranger yet is Moshe’s response, to shatter the tablets God has given him.

In this 12-part series, Rabbi Fohrman dives into a deep study of the Golden Calf story, and asks the questions we often forget to think about – why a calf, of all things? How could Israel possibly believe that the calf brought them out of Egypt? Only once we really understand the perspectives of Moshe, the Israelites, and God, can we finally understand the true story of the Shattered Tablets and the Calf of Gold.
