“And the life of Sora was one hundred and twenty and seven years, these were theyears of Sora’s life. And Sora died in Kiryas Arba, which is Chevron in the land of Canaan; and Avraham came to mourn Sora and weep for her.”

 Rashi explains that the burial place was called Kiryas Arba after the four giants thatwere there: Achiman, Sheishai, Talmai, and their father. Another possible reason was onaccount of the four couples who would rest there: 1) Adam and Chava; 2) Avraham andSora; 3) Yitzchak and Rivkah; and 4) Yaakov and Leah. Rashi also explains thatAvaraham came from Be’er Sheva. In addition, he elucidates why the death of Sora isrecorded immediately after the
akeidah
: Sora expired upon hearing the news that her sonwas prepared for the slaughter and had barely escaped from the knife. [The actual termin Rashi is:
èçùð àìù èòîëå
, which translates as “he was nearly
not 
slaughtered.”This requires further explanation.]
 Ma’aras HaMachpelah
: The Four Hundred Worlds of Yearning
The commentaries are perplexed about the language used by Rashi: “he wasnearly
not 
slaughtered.”
