A Land of Ethical Responsibility ✡ “The Land of Canaan” – Israel365

Here we brought back to you from the land of Canaan the money that we found in the mouths of our bags.

הֵן כֶּסֶף אֲשֶׁר מָצָאנוּ בְּפִי אַמְתְּחֹתֵינוּ הֱשִׁיבֹנוּ אֵלֶיךָ מֵאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן

בראשית מד:ח
HAYN KE-sef a-SHER ma-TZA-nu b’-FEE am-t’-kho-TAY-nu he-shee-VO-nu
ay-LE-kha may-E-retz k’-NA-an

Today’s Israel Inspiration

In this week’s Torah portion Vayigash, Joseph’s brothers attempt to exonerate themselves from the accusations of theft by mentioning that they had already returned the extra money they found in their sacks after the previous trip to Canaan. In the brothers’ minds, the fact that they had returned the missing money adds a further verification of their honesty. As they brought the money back from the Land of Israel, known for its spiritual heights, they must surely have noble intentions.  Since antiquity, the Land of Israel has been synonymous with morality, and the land itself demands a high level of ethical responsibility from its inhabitants.

What does Hallelujah mean in Hebrew?

The English word “Hallelujah” is a Hebrew loanword, which means that it came to us from Biblical Hebrew and has been absorbed in the exact same form in modern speech. We invite you today to begin studying ancient languages with us.
