Today we gain beautiful insight into Abraham’s generous ways. The “eshel” was a fruit tree that Abraham planted to serve fruits to his guests. Our Sages go even deeper and say that “eshel” is an acronym for three Hebrew words: eating (אכילה a-khee-la), drinking (שתיה sh’tee-ya) and escorting (לויה levaya), the three types of hospitality that Abraham was famous for offering to his guests. Colel Chabad, Israel’s oldest charitable organization, follows in the footsteps of Abraham by helping Israel’s neediest citizens- widows and orphans, the sick and elderly, poor immigrants, and hospitalized children. Among many projects to help the poor, Colel Chabad now operates 18 free soup kitchens, serving up over 1 million meals annually. Many of the recipients are aged Holocaust survivors who come as much out of their need of a warm smile and simple human contact, as they do for the nutritious food.
