    This is one one of the most amazing classes I've heard. It puts our relationship with Hashem into perspective. WOW.

    Can it be that the sin of the Golden Calf never happened...what I mean by this is may be this story is an hypocritical one...it's like may be Torah is saying had HaShem not commanded the ISRAELITES to built a Mishkan they would have build an idol. Basically saying had HaShem communicated with and through only Moshe Rebbennu, only the intimate relationship with Moshe Rebbennu when he ask HaShem I wanna see you...so while Moshe Rebbennu was busy in the personal intimate relationship with HaShem, and Jewish Women are busy internalizing their connections with HaShem and the ISRAELITE Men were sitting idol/free they had nothing to do and how to built the connection with HaShem so they built a Golden Calf. So building the Mishkan becames very important for the focus and relationship between ISRAELITE Men and HaShem it's similar to the encounter of Moshe Rebbennu in a up close and personal way at Har Sinia, with Mishkan HaShem came down and dwelled amongst the whole of ISRAELITES. I need more light in this context.

    Let's remember that only a small minority committed

    The chait ha'egel. And that minority was the erev rav who were accustomed to physical "g-ds". Even after seeing the plagues, krias yam suf, the Mann, etc. And remember that is was Moshe on his own initiative that took them along. In reality the aveirah both by bringing them along without asking Hashem and by enabling the chait ha'egel to occur, was Moshe's aveirah. So therefore he took the rap by saying "punish me by erasing me from Your Book".

    Didn't GD know...

     that Moshe would do that? “If you don’t forgive them, then take me out of your book”? I'm thinking yes. It was HIS expectation, no?
