In the video for Parshat Lech Lecha (Genesis 12:1-17:27), David and Immanuel ask – why is it that, though God keeps reassuring Abraham that this land is his, he refuses to settle down? God just promised him the land – why wouldn’t he mark his territory? To answer this, we are reminded that the stories of Abraham occur in a larger context – and specifically, right after the catastrophe of the Tower of Babel – and we can answer the question: what is it about Abraham that really makes him special, and the father of our nation?
