Parshas Chayei Sarah
A beautiful vort heard from Rav Yitzchok Gleizel Shlit”a, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Yagdil Torah in Yerushalayim:
Lavan says to Eliezer, “Come, Blessed one of Hashem”. Chazal say at that point Eliezer no longer bore the curse of Canaan.
The question is, why then.
The reason for Canaan’s curse of slavery is because he was self centred. The entire world was split into only three portions, and he worried about a fourth.
The eitza can only be slavery, toiling completely for another person.
When Eliezer gave all to Avraham, he was no longer under the curse of Canaan. “Come, the blessed one of Hashem”
