In this week’s episode: Genesis 20-23. We decide once and for all whether Avraham deserves a spot alongside Sandy Koufax, Leonard Nimoy and Barbra Streisand in the Jewish pantheon. We consider Avraham’s track record in the run-up to his biggest moment in the Tanakh: the Akkedah, or binding of his son Yitzhak – and conclude that his place in the Hall of Fame might merit another round or two of voting.
Every two weeks, we look at and discuss a portion of the Tanakh from Genesis to 2 Chronicles. It might take a while. Please be patient.
