The second aliyah (section) is a long aliyah about the story of how the Jews sinned with the golden calf. There is a strong parallel between the sin of the golden calf and the sin of Adam. These two stories are both about having the light of Hashem in each Jew. With that light comes immortality, life, and invulnerability. Man was created in a perfect state and then lost it. So too the Jewish people were created in a perfect state and then lost it. The light became more superficial rather than inherent. Our goal is to reverse the steps of the sins and make the light radiate from within us once again.
