Summary of Today's Chumash
In the first aliyah Avrom goes ("lech") and enters the land of Canaan where he traverses up and down, and back and forth in the land. In the Midrash it says that according to Halacha, one way to acquire land is to pace it off, and that is what Avrom was doing, acquiring Eretz Yisroel for the Jewish people.
