    Where can I find more information? Is this spoken about in the Talmud?

    Neither do I.. A Jewish member posted that Wiki information in another thread, and I just wanted to verify whether it is accurate or not..

    I have no idea what this is supposed to mean, or what is being questioned, even.

    The Wiki apparently says that what Elijah said to Hashem, specifically about breaking the covenant is untrue, according to some Rabbinical tradition.. Is this accurate?

    I would have to see the original comment or midrash this wiki claims to be referring to in order to judge what it is or is not saying. I personally have not heard of this, but there are a lot of midrashim out there, and I suppose it's not impossible that one proposes this idea-- but it would be to teach something specific, and I would hesitate to accept any reading of a midrash taken out of context.
