I am digging into finding info on the concept of 'Nora alila al bnei adam'. There seems to be a gemara out there that is connected to this topic and how it somehow relates to the sin of the golden calf and how.

Can someone send me the exact reference , if you know it? After receivng the reference, I would like to ask more questions and share more about this topic in this forum.

Supposedly, the Gemara in Sanhedrin says "nora alila" is also said on the cheit ha'egel (sin of the golden calf).

I am not looking for the reference in Tehillim, but rather in Gemara Sanhedrin. Ty

    sefaria.org/…. It doesn't appear in any gemara, although Ben Yehoyada mentions it in his commentary on Gittin sefaria.org/…

  • @Shmuel I got the first detail from a YT video by Rabbi Alon Anava. He said that Sanhedrin talks about how the sin of the golden calf was more or less a deliberate attempt by the one above to make us sin, for some higher good reason. The rest of the info, I got from google. Commented Nov 15, 2023 at 15:40
  • Ah, I'm a big fan of R' Anava, but don't remember it. Good luck!
