Why are Abraham, Isaac and Jacob the "Fathers" of our nation?
by Rabbi Naftali Silberberg
A child inherits his father's character. Every Jew has inherited the character of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
We receive the ability to love G-d and be kind from Abraham.
We receive the ability to fear G-d and be disciplined from Isaac.
We receive the ability to synthesize and harmonize the attributes of Abraham and Isaac from Jacob.
