Genesis 23:1-25:18: The Life Of Sarah?

| Posted 11.06.2012 | Religion

The name of the Torah portion Chayei Sarah, "the Life of Sarah," is bitterly ironic. Sarah dies in the first verse, offstage, as it were, and the action quickly shifts to Abraham's bargaining for her burial place, and then to the story of the next generation, Isaac and Rebecca.
