Abraham is commanded to leave everything behind and head to the Holy Land with the words, ‘lekh l’kha’, literally “go for yourself.” Since it would have been enough for God to command him ‘lekh’ (“go”), we ask what is added with the word ‘l’kha’ (“for yourself”)? According to the commentator Rashi, the word ‘l’kha’ implies that the journey to the Land will be for Abraham’s benefit, despite the hardship of leaving his birthplace. Indeed, in the Land of Israel, Abraham will have children and he will become known throughout the world. Abraham’s first stop is in the holy city of Hebron, and it is there where he begins to make his mark on all of humanity, and start the process of the formation of monotheism.
