Parsha Recipe: Chayei Sarah

Camels around a well

Chayei Sarah features Operation: Find Issac a wife. The story goes like this: Abraham’s trusted assistant journeys to Charan to find Issac a good wife. After the long journey, he reaches the well of the town, where he stops his entourage of camels to rest. There, he meets the young and lovely Rebecca who exhibits her kindness by offering water not just to him but to the camels as well. Needless to say, Rebecca passes the “test” and becomes one of our dear Matriarchs.
