The funny thing about searching for your bashert (your destined soul-mate), is that even when you find your bashert, you have only partly completed the task. For it is in helping our children through our sacred unions that they find their bashert, and finish the task which we started - to realize our own true destiny. In this mirroring dance of fates between our destiny and that of our children do we find our completion and our hope for the future. This couldn't be more true as we look into this week's parasha and see Avraham bury his beloved Sarah - his bashert - and at the same time move on to helping his son, Yitzchak, find his own destiny and carry on the promises given to Avraham and his progeny for all time.

As we journey through Parashat Lech Lecha, we are introduced to a covenant that will set Avraham and the Jewish people on a course destined for blessing, salvation, and eventually restoration. We witness the blessing of Avraham and the creation of a covenant which is to stand for all time; a covenant which, by its very nature, will allow Avraham to be a conduit of blessing for all who come into his presence. The manner in which this covenant is revealed to Avraham three times and also sealed presents us with a beautiful picture of how when Hashem communicated with Avraham on a deeply personal level, Avraham became so divinely inspired that every part of his being would be profoundly committed for his entire life This theme of mirroring the Divine Presence to others through covenantal blessing began with Avraham and continues today through us. As heirs of the covenantal blessing procured through our Messiah Yeshua, we have the opportunity to infuse holiness into those around us by tapping into the very essence of the Abrahamic Covenant and what it truly means to know our purpose.
