What would you say is the most important Mitzvah? Would you say it’s Shabbat, or perhaps the Holidays? Honouring your parents or being kind to all people?
What interesting to note, is that while these are very important, they are summed up in the Torah in a mere line or two each, with many of their intricate laws not even written clearly in the Torah, rather passed down through oral tradition.
On the other hand, we find that in this week’s Torah portion we are told at great length all the details and miracles involved when Avraham’s servant Eliezer went to find a match for his son Yitzchak.
