The fifth reading in the book of Genesis is translated, “Sarah lived.”
Genesis 23:1 – 25:18
The last portion ended with the binding of Isaac. This traumatic event contributed to the death of Sarah. Isaac was spared and Sarah died. Other things occur in the story like Abraham sending out Elazaar to find a wife for Isaac. Abraham purchases land with a cave to bury Sarah. Hagar comes back and has more children with Abraham. Read the section to connect to the story.
I am posting two videos here. One from Shual on this week’s portion and one from our favorite Rabbi talking about the Moshiach. Both videos bring the lesson to the events of the day.
