Lech Lecha 5784

Parashat Lech Lecha offers us a profound and transformative perspective. The phrase "Go from your land, from your birthplace, from your father's house to the land that I will show you" has been reinterpreted by Rashi as "Go with yourself," thus revealing the essence of the divine message. Abraham didn't just leave his home and family; he abandoned complacency and ventured into the unknown. This act symbolizes the courage to leave the comfort zone and seek a deeper identity.
