Aleph Beta on Parshas Vayeira: Abraham’s Struggle With Loyalty
What was Abraham thinking as he walked up the mountain to slaughter his long-awaited son? How could Abraham be disloyal to his own paternal responsibilities and betray Isaac? In this video, we explore Abraham’s struggle during the Binding of Isaac through his brief but rich conversation with his son. In so doing, we expose an added element of the test in the command to slaughter his son and uncover a new perspective of Abraham’s greatness.
