Ethical Wills of the Patriarchs

  • March 14 – Writing an Ethical Will. Near death, few of us say that we wish we had spent more time at work. What is an ethical will, why and how can you write one, and how far back in history do they go?
  • March 21 – The Three Wills of Abraham. Abraham faced many challenges which resonate with serious Jews today. What might he have said in his ethical will that inspired so many western belief systems?
  • March 29 – The Three Wills of Isaac. Many scholars call him the son of a great father and the father of a great son. Perhaps in his ethical will, he emerges as the wisest and strongest of the Patriarchs.
  • April 4 – The Three Wills of Jacob. Jacob, a distant and troubled father at odds with his parents and siblings, might have tried to use his will to solidify his people’s covenant with God, but at great cost.
