    127 – Chayyei Sarah

    Sarah was 127 when she died (Gen. 23:1). According to the Midrash this was a perfect age to be (Gen. Rabbah).

    Sarah died with the beauty of a young woman and the sinlessness of a child.

    These are the criteria by which to assess a human being – beauty and dignity, righteousness and morality.

    If only we could all merit that kind of judgment, regardless of our age in terms of years!
