Study the Torah and its commentaries to appreciate the special qualities that the Matriarchs possessed.

A closer look at the life of our Matriarch Sarah, details a difficult life, one beset by challenges that would have weakened a lesser person. Yet, she persevered and, together with her husband, the Patriarch Abraham, they dramatically impacted on those around them, through their espousal of ethics and morals for the world to learn from. To appreciate Sarah’s special qualities, read this enlightening analysis entitled “Sarah Dies at Age 127” from Rabbi Ephraim Z. Buchwald’s Torah message for Chayei Sarah 5777-2016. Out of respect for Shabbat, please consider printing it on Friday afternoon if you plan to read it on Shabbat.
