Dear Rabbi Savett,

What a beautiful drash. I would quibble with your translation of Talmud Torah Kineged Coolam. the proper translation is "and teh learning of Torah is a helpmate (or partner)to all of these." There is a gezarah shavah between this kineged and that of "ezer kinigdo".
Perhaps this makes your drash even more powerful. What were Avraham's thoughts as he buried his Ezer Kinegdo? Perhaps this is proof that while Avraham did not Recive Torah, he knew and lived Torah.
BTW, did you know that Avraham Avinu was the first astronaut?
All the best to your mishpocha!
