Today’s Israel Inspiration

With the words lech l’cha (לך לך), literally “Go for yourself,” Avraham is commanded to leave everything behind and head to the Holy Land. It would have been enough for God to command him lech (לך), “go.” What is added by the word l’cha (לך)?  According to the well-known Biblical commentator Rashi, the word l’cha implies that the travel was for Avraham’s benefit. Though he is leaving his homeland, family, and father’s house, God promises Avraham that the journey will be beneficial to him.  These words kick off the unbreakable relationship between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel. The Yeshiva for the Nations is offering an online course by historian and author Shimon Apisdorf entitled, “The Role of the Land of Israel Throughout Jewish History.” This class examines the critical role Israel has played in the history of the Jewish people from the time of the Bible until the present. It also examines the concept of the in-gathering of the exiles and the spiritual meaning behind the return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.

The Land of Israel Throughout History

Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf introduces his course on the Role of the Land of Israel throughout History from the period of the matriarchs and patriarchs until contemporary times.

“Jewish People Are in Transition From Ingathering of Exiles to Redemption”

The Jewish people are living in the second stage of redemption, the period of the ingathering of the exiles, believes Jewish historian Rabbi Shimon Apisdorf.

Shalom Rabbi, my name is Rath and I write to you from South Africa. I was in the military and I worked with some of your people and we have remained friends for over 20 years. Israel is always on my heart. I follow day by day your writings and I give thanks for that. I cannot understand our governments attitude to Israel and I let them know that. You are always in my prayers but I know that our God watches over you. HE is still in control. Shalom and God bless.

Shalom,
