"Chaye Sarah" in Hebron


B"H

The Torah Parasha "Chaye Sarah" is always a big thing for Hebron. Last week's Parashat "Vayera" described the "Akedah - Sacrificing of Yitzchak" and the Torah tells us that Sarah died. Among others, the Torah commentator "Ohr HaChaim" says that Sarah died when she heard about Yitzchak's plan to sacrifice their beloved son.

Thousands of Jews are going to Hebron this Shabbat in order to pray at the grave of Sarah Imenu.

    Unfortunately, I have never made it to Hebron for Parashat Chaye Sarah.
