Our first father, Avraham, as a result of his avoda with self-sacrifice to make G‑d - the one G‑d - widely known among all mankind, merited to bequeath to his descendants (to the end of all generations) pure faith in G‑d and His Torah. Hence, every Jewish man and woman has the power and fortitude to offer his life for the holy Torah.1
