Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman
Weekly series of short messages concerning the weekly Torah Portion.
“And Abraham was old, advanced in days…” (Genesis 24:1) The original Hebrew verse is best translated as, “And Abraham was old, arriving in days…” Our sages teach us that when a person dies and seeks entry into the next world the days of his life come forward to testify as to how he spent his days: in holiness or otherwise. In Avraham’s case, his days arrived before the heavenly court and testified to a life of righteousness.
