Aishel House: What's in a name?
Jewish tradition recounts that the tent of our patriarch Abraham and matriarch Sarah, was known for its generous hospitality to all. In fact, when the Torah relates that “Abraham planted an Aishel in Beer Sheva”, the Midrash explains that this refers to his famous tent, and then points out that the word AiSheL is an acronym for Achila (Food), Shtiya (Drink), Lina (Lodging). That is why the word Aishel has become a term to express a place of genuine, warm hospitality.
