Ki Tisa 5777

What were the Israelites really doing when they worshipped the Golden Calf?

Rashbam:        Could they really be so foolish as not to understand that this calf, which had just been created, had not brought them out of Egypt? Of course not. All idolaters know that our God in heaven created the world. Their mistake was made because idols have in them an unclean spirit, just as the prophets have in them a holy spirit.
