Raize Guttman 08-13-17 (21 Av 5777)

Parsha Vayeira - Beresheit Chapter 18 - Verses 8 - 9

In Verse 8, the Angels made it appear as if they were eating. From here, we learn that people should not change from the custom of the place.

In Verse 9, The Angels ask Avraham where is Sarah? They ask in order to endear him to her. From this we learn, that no matter how old the couple, or how long they are together, it is important to endear each other. Avraham then answers the Angels "Sarah is in the Ohel". From this answer, we learn that the most special compliment one can say about a woman is she is tzniut (modest). Raize explains tzniut on a deeper level and why it is the highest compliment. Underlying all of the applications of the principle of tzniut is the notion that the soul resides within the body.
