The Golden Calf: A Lesson on Betrayal and Reconciliation

Betrayal is a schism, the severing of a connection and one of the most devastating feelings one will experience in life; betrayed in a relationship, with a friend, by G-d, or even by ourselves – betrayed by our own aspirations and dreams. Is it possible to heal from this, repair and rebuild after being broken?

Just like when a contract has upheld a challenge and cannot be tried again, so too with human relationships. Once your heart has gone through a betrayal and you came out the other side healed from it, you have become stronger by withstanding the break, and can therefore be capable to forgive.
