I've seen on non-Jewish websites explaining the fact that Adam ate from the tree was because he loved Eve more than he loved God, or that he did an act of self-sacrifice so that Eve wouldn't suffer alone. Is there any source in Judaism that discusses this possible angle?

    Your title mentions Ahavas Yisroel and your question asks about Ahavas Eve. Which do you want to know – robev Oct 20 '20 at 12:16

    Five minutes later he blames "the woman" when God takes him to task, rather than accept responsibility. Makes it hard to believe he ate out of concern for her. – Shalom Oct 22 '20 at 9:42
