non-pragmatic stance in op-
position to an entire Babylo-
nian civilization.
He was cast into a fiery
furnace for his idealistic de-
fiance of the superstitions of
society. He relinquished the
fertile plains of Sodom for the
barren wastes of Mamreh out
of concern for peace at all
costs. He shunned the rech-
ush, the spoils of war, in
favor of cultivating the
nefesh, the good in human be-
ings.
Nowhere does Abraham
stand out more heroically,
more gloriously and more
unpragmatically than in this
week's sidrah when he sub-
merges every practical con-
sideration — love for a child,
insurance for a future, the
feelings of his wife — and
answers the idealistic sum-
mons from God to offer Isaac
on the altar.
"Remain here," he said to
his servants, with the
chamor, the mule. Said one
Hassidic sage, chamor is not
only a mule; it is chomet,
materialism, personal com-
forts — in a word, practiced
considerations.
Va-ani
v'hanaar, but I and my son,
nilcha ad ko, will go up
there. We will rise above
pragmatic pursuits; - we will
reach for the heavens, for the
stars, for God, whatever the
consequences.
Abraham is the prototype
for the Jewish people. Ab-
raham's idealistic posture
must be our stance. Ab-
raham's achievement of the
spirit must be our challenge.
Abraham's quest for the stars
and heavens must be our in-
spiration.
The surveys of the social
scientist notwithstanding,
religious goals can be
achieved if we, like Abraham,
are prepared to rise above the
practical and aim for the et-
ernal.
