After explaining the origins of the universe and of humanity, in Lech Lecha the Torah now turns to the origins of what became known as the Jewish people. We are introduced to the powerful characters of Abraham and Sarah (originally known as Avram and Sarai before God changes their names) who are asked by God to leave their home in Haran and 'go' to the land that would be shown to them. In an act of great faith, they do go, with Lot their nephew and a large entourage, and arrive in Canaan, the land that God promises to Abraham and his descendants. But, due to famine, they are soon forced to leave Canaan. They go down to Egypt and then back again to Canaan, encountering adventure and adversity all along the way. God enters into a formal covenantal relationship with Abraham, promising to give him land and to make of his descendants a great people. Sarah and Abraham seem unable to conceive a child, and so, keeping with the custom of time, Sarah offers Hagar, her maidservant, to bear Abraham a son. Hagar does conceive, and gives birth to Ishmael, but this causes great jealousy in Sarah. As the portion closes, God instructs Abraham to circumcise himself and his son and all future male descendants as a sign of the eternal covenant.
