Three Forefathers, Three Missions - One Nation

The forefathers instituted the three prayer services. Avraham established the morning service. The Torah states, "Avraham arose early in the morning and stood (Amida) before God." Yitzchak enacted the afternoon service as it states, "Yitzchak went out to converse (Sicha) in the field towards evening." Yaakov established the evening service as it says, "He encountered (Pegiyah) the place."

Rabbi Nison Alpert explains that each verb associated with the Avot reflects the unique nature of their mission and ours.

Avraham's life goal was to disseminate his faith. He had to stand strong in the face of rampant idolatry. He faced a world opposed to his beliefs. They tried to influence him and he in turn tried to influence them. It was Avraham standing alone against the world. Yet, he WON. He could not be shaken. He was resolute, focused and absolutely determined to stand for God's mission.

Yitzchak's prayer took on a different dimension. He accepted the responsibility of continuing his father's holy mission. It is not simple to walk in his father's footsteps with the same tenacity and passion as his parent. He has to ask himself, "Why am I doing this? What is my motivation? Do I have the enthusiasm to serve as the bridge to the next generation?" These questions can only be explored in solitude and deep mediation. Prayer of this type is called "Conversation."

Finally, Yaakov's mission is embodied by the word Pegiyah - encountering. He could not meet the self sacrifice of his father and grandfather. What would be his mission in the development of the nation of Israel? Yaakov discovered that his role was to reveal the Torah in everyday life. Man could aspire to commune with God on earth. Yaakov demonstrated that the entire world is a Beit Elokim- a house of God.

We are tasked with modeling all of these dimensions. In the morning, we reflect on the strength of our Torah values in the face of opposition. In the afternoon, we contemplate the purpose and passion of our unique contribution to the sacred mission of the Jewish people. In the evening, we reaffirm how in our daily lives we insure that Torah is all encompassing at every stage and situation in our lives.

Wishing you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving weekend and Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Daniel Cohen
