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 people- widows and orphans, the sick and elderly, poor immigrants, and hospitalized children.
The two prominent symbols in today’s photo- the Israeli flag and the Tower of David- have in common that they both represent the kindness of God Who gave the Jewish people an ancient homeland and thousands of years later renewed the gift with a modern return to the state of Israel.
