פרשת וירא

ספר בראשית

"And He appeared"

Avraham fulfills the mitzvah of circumcision—symbol of the pact with God—and receives the visit of 3 divine emissaries who tell him that he and Sarah will have a son within a year. Next, Avraham intercedes with God so that He does not destroy Sodom and Gomorah. Lot's wife turns into a pillar of salt. His daughters give rise to the tribes of Amon and Moab. Avraham sets out to sacrifice his son Yitzchak.
