Avraham Avinu (Abraham) was the progenitor of both the Jewish nation and of all religions that embrace monotheism. In contrast to the other faiths of the world, the Jewish people view Avraham Avinu as a role model who continues to guide and inspire his descendants. As his children, it is incumbent on us to learn about his ways and to follow them. Although our national faith is rooted in the Exodus from Egypt, and Jewish life is based upon the Torah given at Mt. Sinai, it is ultimately Avraham Avinu who is the founder of Jewish belief. Avraham Avinu Word Avraham Avinu – The Great Progenitor
