Where Was Sarah During the Akeidah (the Binding of Isaac)?

D'Var Torah By: Rabbi Paul Kipnes and Michelle November, MSSW

In Parashat Chayei Sarah (the life of Sarah), we learn that our biblical matriarch Sarah lived 127 years, she died, and Abraham purchased her burial cave in Hebron (Gen. 23:1-20). Sadly, the only Torah portion named after a woman provides few hints about her life or final days.
