Summary of Today's Chumash
The seventh aliyah says that the people trembled at the thunder and lightning, and the sound of the shofar, and the smoking mountain, and were afraid. They were also afraid because during the first two commandments the people expired and were revived because they couldn't take the Divine revelation. As a result, they ask Moshe to be a go-between and get the rest of the Torah for them. Moshe does so, and receives the other 611 commandments on Mt. Sinai.

It is interesting to note that the gematria (numerical value) of the word "Torah" is 611. The Jewish people heard two commandments directly from G-d, and the other 611 through Moshe.

As the aliyah continues, the Torah continues with the commandments forbidding the making of idols.
