Torah Portion: Hayei Sarah (Sarah’s Life) B’resheet/Genesis 23:1-25:18
Haftorah Reading I Kings 1:1-31
The first three words of this Torah section are, “Life of Sarah.” Yet in this section we read of the death of both Sarah and Avraham. So, what does this say to us? Whether we like to think of it or not we are all on the path to death. But the more important question is how do we spend our days during the years of our life here on earth? In the life of both of these people what do we see? How did they live their lives? Both Avraham and Sarah overcame difficulties and were able to hang on to their faith in the Father.
