In this week’s parsha, the Jewish people commit the worst sin possible – worshiping a false god – right after God gives them the Torah on Mt. Sinai. In this video, Rabbi Fohrman asks us about a bizarre question that Moshe asks God, “Why, God, should you be angry at your people?” and reminds us that God and the nation of Israel are attached by destiny.
