Being the body is interned and returns to the earth, where does the soul go if it lives on forever? Rabbi Gordon says that the person lives on through their descendants via their influence and teachings, so this is figuratively rather than literally that the soul lives forever? To my understanding, the soul returns to Gd. and not of this earth. Reply

Burial if Adam, Eve and Sarah Over 1000 years passed between the death of Adam and the burial of Sarah. A lot of things can happen and be forgotten in 1000 years.

Thank you very much. Reply

The Life of Sarah Hello Rabbi,
Doesn't it seem odd that Ephron didn't know that he owned the property where Adam and Eve were buried and also that Abraham DID know?? Thank you for your wonderful way of teaching, you are a scholar and a comic.
All my respect,
