Commentary on the Weekly Torah Portion from Rabbi Jonathan’s Book, “Turn It and Turn It.”

Hayei Sarah | Equanimity in the Face of Uncertainty
Life goes on after Sarah’s death, as it should. There is grieving and renewal, loss and continuity. But the name of our parashah — “The Life of Sarah” — prompts us to pause and assess Sarah’s life before the inevitable moving on. I would like to examine two prominent streams of interpretation of the text.

“A Shtickle Toyrah” (a bit of Torah)
