UNESCO vs The Bible ✡ “Avraham buried Sara his wife in the cave of the field” – ISRAEL365

And after this, Avraham buried Sara his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre–the same is Chevron–in the land of Canaan.

וְאַחֲרֵי כֵן קָבַר אַבְרָהָם אֶת שָׂרָה אִשְׁתּוֹ אֶל מְעָרַת שְׂדֵה הַמַּכְפֵּלָה עַל פְּנֵי מַמְרֵא הִוא חֶבְרוֹן בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן

Today’s Israel Inspiration

Genesis 23 records the purchase of the Chevron (Hebron) by Abraham as a burial plot for his wife, Sara. The Sages taught that the name Chveron (khev-ron) is a contraction of the the word ‘khaver’ /חבר (friend) and the word ‘na-eh’/נאה (agreeable). The name of the city of Hebron identifies Abraham as the first agreeable friend of God, as God says in Isaiah (41:8), “The seed of Abraham, My friend.” This past week UNESCO voted to list Chevron as a Palestinian world heritage site at risk, which US ambassador Haley called “an affront to history.” You can learn all about the unique connection between God and His people to the Hebron and to the other holy cities in Israel in Yishai Fleisher’s great course Israel’s Seven Holy Cities. This course available exclusively at the Yeshiva for the Nations, Israel365’s online academy for authentic Torah learning.
