In Genesis 11:31, Terach takes Avraham (then Avram), Sarah (then Sarai), and Lot to the Land of Canaan, i.e. Israel. However, they stopped in Charan, and Terach spent the rest of his life there. Why didn't they continue?
Alshich - last piece on Parshas Noach says that Terach never made it to Eretz Yisrael since he did not leave Ur Kasdim for the love of Eretz Yisrael, he left it as he was on the run. However Avraham who left Ur Kasdim as he had a love for Eretz Yisrael was rewarded that he arrived there.
