Chaye Sarah: A Eulogy for Sarah

Posted by Meir Schweiger on October 28, 2018
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Bereishit (Genesis), Torah, Chaye Sarah, Special Series

Our parsha begins with the words: “And the life of Sarah was..” , but does not tell us anything about her life other than how long she lived. It then goes on to say that when she died, Abraham came to eulogize her, but does not record what he said. In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger examines the stories where Sarah has a voice and is pro-active to get a deeper understanding of the major impact she has had on Jewish peoplehood.
