The book of Ezra-Nehemiah is dedicated to the rejuvenation of the Land of Israel, the people of Israel, and the Torah laws through a series of reforms. Ezra implemented spiritual reforms to combat assimilation and promote Jewish education, while Nehemiah’s focus was more pragmatic, concentrating on physically reestablishing Jewish communities and re-fortifying Jerusalem. Both were essential for the survival of the nation. As Israel’s first modern Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook commented, even the most mundane tasks like plowing a field or building a home, if performed in Israel, constitute a fulfillment of the word of God.
