Calling Us HOME

Rav Levi Yitzchak Lederman, an established Talmid Chacham at the Mir Yeshiva, emphatically

calls out to his brothers in Chutz L'Aretz, encouraging them to come HOME.


The Torah has returned to Eretz Yisrael . . . today the opportunity for a person to live comfortably in Eretz Yisrael without facing the hardships that were required to do so during galus is available to every single Jew wherever he may be. [The time has come] to simply leave the lands of the nations, to leave the lands where Chazal say that those who live there are as if they have no G-D and to come and live in Eretz Yisrael and to לֶאֱכוֹל מִפִּרְיָהּ וְלִשְׂבּוֹעַ מִטּוּבָהּ and וּנְבָרְכָךְ עָלֶיהָ בִּקְדֻשָּׁה וּבְטָהֳרָה.

We need to get down to the sources and see what they say. As we said, one who reads the Chumash, the pesukim, one who learns Navi, Yeshaya, Yirmiyah, Yechezkal, Trei Assar - Zechariah and more, sees explicitly the message emanating from the pesukim: It’s ratzon Hashem that His children live in His house, ratzon Hashem that they live in His courtyard, ratzon Hashem that His children be in their proper place - in Eretz haKedoshah m’kol haAratzos, in the land that עֵינֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בָּהּ--מֵרֵשִׁית הַשָּׁנָה, וְעַד אַחֲרִית שָׁנָה.

We should follow in the footsteps of the Avos, the Avos loved Eretz Yisrael - they desired Eretz Yisrael.

!קוּם הִתְהַלֵּךְ בָּאָרֶץ לְאָרְכָּהּ וּלְרָחְבָּהּ כִּי לְךָ אֶתְּנֶנָּה
