Today’s Israel Inspiration

Today’s verse describes how Abraham hastened to prepare food for the three visitors that arrived at his home. The word cattle, ‘ba-kar’, בקר, has the same letters as the word for grave, ‘kever’, קבר. From this play on words, the sages learn that Abraham realized that the site he had reached also housed the graves of Adam and Eve, and therefore, when he would need a burial place in the future, this site was what he should purchase.
