The Search for Truth is Part of Truth: Avraham's "Lost" Years

Dissecting the Mitzvah of Chinuch

1 hr 55 min

Class Summary:

This advanced text-based class on Likkutei Sichos vol. 35 Vayeira explores the essence of the mitzvah of Chinuch, which is a rabbinic obligation. How does the Torah expect a child who reaches the age of Bar or Bas Mitzvah to just "hit the road running"? Does this child not need the time to "learn the ropes"? The answer to this question gives us deep insight into the process of growth and all of our experiences of trial and error. It also explains the first forty years of the life of Avraham when he was involved in idolatry, searching for the truth. How can we say that all his years were wholesome when he was entrenched in idolatry in his early years?
