Raize Guttman 01-19-20 (22 Tevet 5780)

Parsha Chayei Sarah - Chapter 24 - Verses 61-64

This week in our Parsha we see Rivka, her maidens and her entourage traveling from her homeland to Canaan. As she is passing on the road, she saw Yitzchak for the first time (davening in the field). “Rivka fell from the camel” (vatipol me-al hagamal) from seeing him for the first time. Raize addresses the question of what the Torah means when it speaks of Rivka “falling".

Also, the Torah mentions when Yitzhak lifted up his eyes, he only saw camels were coming. The Torah does not mention that he saw Rivka, his new wife and her entourage. Yitzhak was such a tzadik that he chose where to put his eyes, and chose what to see.
