Land of Desire


“For you (Israel) shall be a land of desire, says the Lord of Hosts” (Malachi 3:12)

Uht azoy vi di gresteh chachamim velen aybig nit dergayen di groyseh, tiviusdikeh otzaros, velcheh Hashem Yisburech huht tovayah geven buaretz, az hakol haya min heafar, uht azoy ken kayner nit dergayen di groyseh otzaros vos ligen in Yidden, vos zay zaynen dem Aybershten’s eretz chefetz.” ~ The Baal Shem Tov

Just as the greatest scientists will never discover the limits of the enormous natural resources that the Almighty has sunk into the land (“everything came from the Earth” – Kohelet 3:20), neither will anyone ever find the limits of the great treasures that lie within Israel the people–G-d’s “land of desire”.
