When in Chevron


"R' Tanchum bar Chanilai said: One should never alter from local practice. Moshe ascended to Heaven and did not eat bread; the ministering malachim descended below [to visit Avraham] and ate bread.

"Do you truly think they ate bread?! Rather: They appeared to eat and drink."

(Talmud, Bava Metzia 86b)

Have a great day,
