Me: What do you think was the purpose of Akeidat Yitzhak?
Dad: To test Avraham.
Me: To test him if what? If he would put God before his children?
Me: So, you think that’s the most ideal thing? To put God before your children?
Me: Would you put God before your children?
Dad: Yes, I would.
…I don’t think I would. Maybe that makes me a bad Jew, or maybe that means there are multiple ways to read the story. I like to go with the second one. Also, I’m a little concerned that my dad told me that, straight to my face.
