What is a Midrash? These are some of the most beloved midrashim in Judaism’s Oral Tradition. Did God coerce us into accepting the obligations of Torah by suspending Mt. Sinai over our heads? The Earth feared that the Universe would be cancelled if the people did not accept Torah that day, the 6th of Sivan. 600,000 ministering angels brought two crowns for every person because we saif na’aseh v’nishma, we will do and we will hearken. But they were taken from us in the incident of the golden calf. The words of God were given in 70 languages. Our souls flew away with each utterance but angels escorted us back. R’ Yehoshua ben Levi sets the scene in Heavenly Tribunal when God told Moses to make the case for humanity.
