(Continuing the above sicha:) Bereishit is a cheerful sedra, even though its ending is not all that pleasant. Noach has the Flood, but the week ends on a happy note with the birth of our father Avraham. The really joyous week is that of parshat Lech L'cha. We live every day of the week with Avraham, the first to dedicate his very life to spreading G‑dliness in the world. And Avraham bequeathed his self-sacrifice as an inheritance to all Jews.1

Compiled and arranged by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, in 5703 (1943) from the talks and letters of the sixth Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, of righteous memory.

Daily Quote
The special quality of the Minchah (afternoon) prayer over the Shacharit (morning) and Maariv (evening) prayers is that it comes in the middle of the day, when people are occupied and busy with their personal affairs, yet they interrupt to pray Minchah. So this prayer is especially beloved to G-d.
