The Machpelah Cave is where Abraham, Sara, Isaac, Rivka, Jacob and Leah are all buried. Abraham’s purchase of this property was the first concrete action to establish a Jewish connection with a particular place in the Land of Israel, and upon his death he is buried in this place. Today, thousands of years later, Jews commemorate the Sabbath when this Torah portion is read, which takes place this week, as ‘Shabbat Chevron’. Synagogues around the world dedicate study and prayers in honor of Hebron, and tens of thousands of Israeli Jews and tourists visit the Holy City for Shabbat.
