This document, part of the NiSh'ma series, presents four brief commentaries on Genesis 21:17-18, in which Hagar's son cries out and an angel of God promises Hagar to make a great nation of him. The authors - two rabbis, a Jewish Community Council Director and a co-founder and co-director of Children of Abraham - explore the importance and implications behind the verse.
