Descent within the Jewish people is not a new thing. It goes back to the very inception of our nation. Just 40 days after the mass revelation at Mt. Sinai, when every Jew was raised to the level of Prophecy, several Jews participated in the Golden Calf. At the time, the Almighty wanted to wipe out the Jews and start over with Moshe, not because they were involved in idol worship, rather because they were an Am K’shei Oref - a stiff-necked nation. Since time immemorial, this has been both our blessing and our curse. On one hand, it is one of the national traits that has helped us stand up to all on the long list of tormentors of our history, and not be swayed. On the other hand, it has caused us so much trouble with our leaders on one side, and Hashem himself on the other.
