The Torah of Israel
The Sages teach that the wisdom referred to in this verse is the knowledge of Torah(Bible), and the patrimony refers to the Land of Israel, the eternal inheritance of the Jewish People. Tovachochma im nachala (wisdom is as good as patrimony) literally means “wisdom is good with an inheritance.” This means that the wisdom of the Torah is enhanced by the inheritance that is the Land of Israel. The Sages also teach that “there is no Torah like the Torah of the Land of Israel,” since the very air of the Israel makes a person wise. Israel is the Jews’ natural habitat, and it is therefore the place in which they can flourish and reach their spiritual potential.

My good wife Laurie and I (married 45 years), founded Love For His People Ministry in 2010.

Through social media, Steve's messages, and our Ahava Adventures trips to Israel, the ministry is a growing, effective outreach.
