The weekly portion of Chaye Sarah includes four essential Jewish values. From Zionism to welcoming guests Abraham and his descendants demonstrate what will become core beliefs of the Jewish people. How are they expressed in this parashah?

Watch this video by Rabbi Prof. David Golinkin, President of The Schechter Institutes, and learn how we are living out these values today.
