Before Nefesh B'Nefesh

Something to think about over Shabbos.

Everybody knows that Hashem commanded Avraham to go to the Land of Israel and he went.

Cool.

At the end of Parshas Noach [at that point of the parsha it is hard to pay attention. We are already sooo exhausted by the Mabul and the Tower] we read that Terach was on his way with his family [including Avraham] to Israel.

What was HE thinking?

Good Shabbos, Good Shabbos!!

Perhaps he was looking for some nice idolatry.

Rav Soloveichik zt"l analyzes and develops this issue beautifully based primarily on the Ramban at the beginning of Lech L'cha as well as other meforshim

You can hear the whole shiur (in English and in pretty good quality) here:

go to "Parsha" and open the shiur on Lech Licha.
