The field that Abraham had bought from the sons of Heth there Abraham and his wife Sarah were buried.
הַשָּׂדֶה אֲשֶׁר קָנָה אַבְרָהָם מֵאֵת בְּנֵי חֵת שָׁמָּה קֻבַּר אַבְרָהָם וְשָׂרָה אִשְׁתּוֹ
ha-sa-deh a-sher ka-na av-ra-ham may-ayt b'-nay khayt sha-ma ku-bar av-ra-ham v'-sa-ra ish-to
This week, Jews around the world will read about Abraham's death and how he was buried beside his wife Sarah in the Cave of Machpelah, in the city of Hebron. This spot was once simply a field, but is now the resting place of the biblical forefathers and foremothers. Today, their very descendants live in the city of Hebron and continue the mission of Abraham, to spread the word of God.
Abraham began the long lasting love story between the Jewish People and the Land of Israel, when God commanded him to leave his birthplace for a land that He would show him. This land exceeded all expectation and is truly a "land of milk and honey." Sing along to this beautiful song by Fran Avni.
