Akeidas Yitzchok: The most difficult challenge any human being ever faced! The greatest "test" of all of Avrohom Avinu's 10 tests!
Even greater than the challenge of Avrohom's own self sacrifice, into the fires of Nimrod, was the challenge of "The Binding of Isaac"!
But the Akaidah was more than just a physical test of sacrificing Yitzchok's life... more than just a test of the mettle of Avrohom Avinu's commitment to Hashem.
This final accomplishment is what Rav Schwab calls "Akeidas HaDaas" The offering (or binding) of Avrohom's own intellect - in total subordination to the will of Hashem! And it's not unique to Avrohom Avinu alone!
Throughout the generations the Al-mighty has called upon the Jewish Nation, collectively and individually, to be inspired by Avrohom's commitment and to draw upon our inherited spiritual DNA of our father Avrohom and likewise "offer" or "bind" our intellect to the will of the Divine!
