TORAH PORTION

Chayei Sarah

חַיֵּי שָׂרָה

The Life of Sarah

Sarah lived to be 127 years old--such was the span of Sarah's life. - Genesis 23:1


SUMMARY

Abraham purchases the cave of Machpelah in order to bury his wife Sarah. (23:1-20)

Abraham sends his servant to find a bride for Isaac. (24:1-9)

Rebekah shows her kindness by offering to draw water for the servant's camels at the well. (24:15-20)

The servant meets Rebekah's family and then takes Rebekah to Isaac, who marries her. (24:23-67)

Abraham takes another wife, named Keturah. At the age of one hundred and seventy-five years, Abraham dies, and Isaac and Ishmael bury him in the cave of Machpelah. (25:1-11)
