Description: In Parashat Chaye Sarah, Avraham sends his servant Eliezer on a mission to find a spouse for his son Yitzchak. Avraham doesn’t offer much in the way of criteria, but Eliezer devises a test of character to find a spouse worthy of Yitzchak. As we witness the encounter between Eliezer and Rivka, the reader notices many similarities in words, actions, and values to the stories of Avraham. Rivka exercises leadership and uses her influence to prove herself worthy to be the true successor to Avraham and leader of the next generation.
