Who was Sarah? The Torah tells us the following:
And the life of Sarah was one hundred years and twenty years and seven years; [these were] the years of the life of Sarah.
What does this “good” mean, and how can we emulate it in our daily life?
We see in Tehillim (Psalms) 27:3:
“Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and be nourished by faith.”
Rashi explains doing good here as the following: “Then you will dwell in the Land for a long time”. By this, Rashi means that doing good means living in Israel for a long period of time.
What does goodness and the land of Israel have to do with one another? One can interpret this in many different ways, but I’m going to focus on just one.
So how do we be good? To take care of others and be leaders of the Jewish people
