Weekly Torah Portion: Lech Lecha

Torah from the Old City of Jerusalem.

Rabbi Chaim Richman

Temple Instittute (Ark)

Trying to explain away creation without fully comprehending the purpose of creation is a lesson in futility which ultimately ends in idolatry.

Man, from the earliest generations to our present day has fallen repeatedly into this trap.

Avraham understood that purpose and intent were the guiding principles and the enduring forces which created and maintain creation, and that the ultimate and only purpose of creation was for man to know the creator, the One G-d, blessed be He, Master of the universe.
