Parshas: Lech Lecha


“The LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your native land and from your father’s house to the land that I will show you.”

There is a classic question asked regarding this verse and the entire parshah in general. Why is it that our forefather Avraham is given no introduction? Almost every other great hero in Tanach is given a back story and it is very rare for a person to just be introduced without hearing anything about them. Noach as an example, we are told was a great Tzaddik, and then G-d speaks to him. It is all the more shocking then, that before hearing anything about Avraham, G-d engages him in a conversation about how much potential for good he and his descendants have for the world. There are many answers given to this question, but I would like to present one from Rav Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter known as the Sefas Emes. He writes that everyone heard the call of Lech Lecha! Everyone heard the call of G-d to be adventurous and leave behind the old and incorrect path of paganism. To leave behind their heritage, and birthrights to acquire something so much greater. But only Avraham listened. His introduction, the reason why G-d chose to build a relationship with him and his descendants, was because he showed the courage to leave his past behind and he showed the faith to follow G-d into unknown (“the place that I will show you”).

Each and everyone of us, as the children of Avraham Avinu, have this strength and courage inside of us. Hashem should help us use it to overcome all of our past challenges and obstacles so we can fulfill the verse of “And all the families of the earth shall bless themselves by you.”


Have a Wonderful Shabbos!
