SOMMAIRE DE LA PARACHA:

 

Sarah décède à l’âge de 127 ans. Elle est inhumée dans la grotte de Makhpelah à Hébron qu’Abraham acquiert d’Efron le Hittite, pour le prix de 400 shekels d’argent.

Chargé de cadeaux, Eliézer, le serviteur d’Abraham est envoyé à ‘Haran afin d’y trouver une épouse pour Isaac. Devant le puits de la bourgade, Eliézer prie D.ieu qu’un signe lui soit donné : la jeune fille qui offrira de faire boire les chameaux avec lesquels il a voyagé sera celle qui est destinée au fils de son maître.

Rébecca, fille de Bethouel, le neveu d’Abraham, accomplit le signe. Eliézer est reçu chez Bethouel à qui il relate les évènements qui viennent de survenir. Rébecca accepte de suivre Eliézer en Canaan où ils rencontrent Isaac priant dans les champs. Isaac épouse Rébecca qu’il aime profondément et par qui il est consolé de la perte de sa mère.

Abraham prend une nouvelle épouse, Kétourah (Hagar) qui lui donne six nouveaux fils, mais Isaac est désigné comme son seul héritier. Abraham décède à l’âge de 175 ans et est inhumé auprès de Sarah par ses deux premiers fils, Isaac et Ismaël. (Chabad.org)

JEWISH PROVERBS:
Even the most expensive clock still shows sixty minutes in every hour

Respect your doctor until you need him
There is no wealth like health."
As a cure for worrying, work is better than whisky

Sickness of the spirit is worse than sickness of the flesh."
A faithful friend is the medicine of life.
The Land of Israel is the House of God."

Idleness causes boredom
"Who saw not Jerusalem in its glory has never seen a beautiful city."

If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.
"Men worry over the loss of their possessions, not over the loss of the years—which never return."

LE SOURIRE DU CHABBAT:


Un homme appelle un taxi qui vient de passer...
Le taxi s'arrête un peu plus loin, et recule pour prendre son client,
Dis donc ! dit l'homme au chauffeur, vous ne comptez pas me facturer le trajet de la marche arrière ?
Non, dit le Chauffeur, je ne facture pas ce service !!
Et bien pourriez-vous m'emmener à la gare ? en marche arrière ?


Dans le train, le contrôleur dit à une vieille dame :
- Votre billet est pour Bordeaux. Or ce train va à Nantes.
- Ca c'est ennuyeux, rouspete la voyageuse.
Et ça arrive souvent au chauffeur de se tromper comme ça ?

 


Papa ! C'est quoi un alcoolique ?
Ben un alcoolique c'est quelqu'un qui va voir les choses en double. Tu vois par exemple ces 4 arbres là bas ? L'alcoolique lui en verra 8.
- Mais papa il n'y a que 2 arbres !
