CHAYEI SARA


*Sarah passes away at the age of 127.

Avraham mourns her death and cries and she is buried in Ma’aras Hamachpelah, where Adam and Chava were buried. Avraham went to purchase the cave (Ma'aras Hamachpela) from a man named Ephron.

Ephron offered the land at first for free, but when Avraham wants to pay him, he charges him a large amount, 400 Silver Shekalim.

*The passuk says that Avraham was old and Hashem blessed him with “kol” – everything. Avraham calls his servant Eliezer to promise to find a wife for Yitzchak, sending him to his birthplace, Charan, to find a girl from his family. Eliezer takes 10 camels and many gifts along with him and goes on his way. He miraculously has kefitzas haderech (quickening of the way). When he arrives outside the city, by a well, Eliezer asks Hashem for a sign for the girl destined to marry Yitzchok. The girl that offers to give him and his camels to drink from the well, she should be the one. As he is finishing his tefilla to Hashem, Rivka, the daughter of Besuel (Avraham’s nephew) arrives at the well and offers Eliezer and all his camels to drink. Eliezer excitedly gave her a nose ring and 2 bracelets and is invited to stay by her father’s house. Eliezer blesses Hashem for guiding him.

*Eliezer retells her family the story of Avraham’s growth and him sending Eliezer to find a wife for Yitzchak and the whole story that happened at the well. They agree to send Rivka and Eliezer gives her more silver and gold and special clothing. He gives her brother Lavan and her mother delicacies that he brought and they all sit and have a feast.

*They send Rivka with Eliezer along with her nursemaid to go marry Yitzchak. As they approached, Yitzchak was davening in the field and Rivka sees him and covers herself with a veil. Yitzchak brings her to his mother Sarah’s tent and marries her and is comforted by her. The medrash says that the 3 special brachos that had left the tent when Sarah died had returned when Rivka came into the tent. These were: the cloud of the shechina over the tent, the candles burned from week to week, and there was a blessing of abundance in the challah dough.

*Avraham now takes a wife for himself named Keturah. The medrash says that this is Hagar, she did Teshuva. Avraham has more sons. He gives all his possesions to Yitzchak, and to his sons he gives gifts and sends them away to Kedem – the east. Avraham lives 175 years and is buried in Ma’aras Hamachpela.

The pesukim list the sons of Yishmael and that he died at 137.
