At this time of year, we read about Abraham, the spiritual father of Christians, Muslims and Jews in the Torah (Old Testament) portions. Abraham was very different. He was a man among men. He and his wife Sarah not only discovered the Force that connects and is ONE with ALL of Creation- but made it their life’s mission to teach the world about the connection and ONENESS of the great Spirit- to spread the truth and beauty of its ways to ALL who would hear. Their house was open to ALL. All guests and travelers would be fed and cared for, and would be enlightened as to the true source of the food they had just been graced with (Talmud Sotah 10b). And when others were threatened- even those in Sodom whose disconnection from each other and the great Spirit threatened to destroy them- Abraham dropped all and prayed for their salvation (Genesis 18:20-33). “Abraham is our father,” they answered. “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do the things Abraham did”. Prophet Muhammad asserted that Abraham is the patriarch of Islam because he “surrendered himself to Allah”. May PEACE be upon you our sisters and brothers:) As-salamu Alaykum:) Shalom Aleichem:)
