Short Vort:  How to Build a Legacy?
"When will my actions reach the level of my Forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?" (Tanna D'vei Eliyahu, 25).  As Jews we search for role models.  It's therefore striking that a cornerstone of Isaac's legacy  is digging wells. What is symbolic in this difficult and arduous task?

On the surface, digging a well is an act of supreme compassion, as water is the most central and indispensable staple of life. But there is more than meets the eye.   The Lubavitcher Rebbe points out a distinction between wells and springs.  Both are a natural water source.  The difference - a spring flows effortlessly to the surface while wells require human effort to remove the barriers.  

Sometimes life presents us with wellsprings that naturally and elegantly pour forth their bounty.  More often, though, life is defined by being a well digger.  When others simply see dirt, the true greats have the vision to see the deep potential within.  Greatness is defined by our tenacity and determination to reveal the blessings latent beneath the surface.

Isaac had many historic accomplishments, the Torah even describes how he "waxed great."  Yet, his ultimately legacy is as a well digger.   May we all be his spiritual heirs.
Rabbi Daniel Green
