Abraham, forefather of the Jewish people, was the real deal – a true spiritual seeker to whom God revealed himself. Abraham was an iconoclast who risked it all – separation from his family, ostracization, and even attempts to kill him – in order to bravely declare and teach to all the world that God is One.

How did he become this person, and what profound influence does the template of his life have over the lives of his descendants, the Children of Israel?

In this week’s episode of the Jerusalem Lights podcast, Jim Long and Rabbi Chaim Richman ponder the legacy of Abraham in the context of Israel’s ongoing war against the Hamas terrorists who savagely murdered 1,400 Jews on October 7th, raping women, decapitating babies and burning families alive, and kidnapped 222 people, taking them to the terrorist enclave of Gaza.
