Sarah is among the most famous women of the Torah. Initially named Sarai, she was given the new name Sarah, meaning princess, after she had married Abraham. Sarah also means ‘mother of nations’. Every time someone called Sarah or anytime she introduced herself to someone she was making a proclamation of faith, calling herself the mother of many nations even before she had a child. She later became the mother of Isaac, and through Isaac the grandmother of Jacob, who was renamed Israel. Sarah is therefore one of the ancestors of all of the Israelites.
Sarah and Abraham left their home in Haran to travel in Canaan, because God pledged to give them a land. For a time she and Abraham were in Egypt and they pretend to be brother and sister out of fear that Sarah’s beauty would incite the Egyptians to kill her husband. Sarah lived ninety years of her life without bearing children, and, thinking it was her imperfection, asked Abraham to father a child through their servant Hagar. God promised that Sarah too would bear a son and she laughed at the proposal. Later she laughed for joy when her baby was born, and she named the child Isaac that means, “he laughed.”
Sarah lived to the age of 127 years, and died at Hebron, southwest of Jerusalem. Abraham bought a burial cave from the Hittites, and Sarah was interred there. Contrasting millions of other ancient peoples however, Sarah was not forgotten or vanished.
Eventually, Sarah’s tomb was expanded and used as a ancestors burial place, including not only Abraham, but also for their son Isaac and his wife Rebecca, and then later their grandson Jacob (Israel) and his wife Leah. They all lie there to this day.
