In this week’s Torah portion, Lech Lecha, we are introduced to the personality and philosophy of our patriarch, Avraham Avinu. Although he was a great teacher and had many followers, he is not known as “Avraham our teacher.” Instead, he is known to us as the model of true חסד, acts of loving kindness. The knowledge of God attained in his quest for truth changed the internal direction of his soul.
