The Land of Israel and the Jew ... Vaeschanan

Yosef ... Moses

The Torah describes: Moses was an "Egyptian man" (disguised in egyptian clothes) and Yosef was a "Hebrew Man, and a Hebrew Slave"

"He who acknowledged his land, will be buried in the land; he who did not acknowledge his land, will not be buried in the land. Joseph acknowledged the land; Moses did not." G-d's reply in Midrash Rabah Devarim.

Israel for the Jew is not merely a nationality; it is the home of the Jewish inner consciousness: The Jewish soul is rooted in the energy vibrating in the atmosphere of Eretz Israel.

Please read this wonderful and moving essay by Yosef Y. Jacobson, entitled Ashamed To Defend Their Home - Why Moses was Denied Entry into the Holy Land, at at the yeshiva.net


To me, Yosef represents the Jews over thousands of years in alien lands yearning to return but were prevented, including those who were and are trapped in history in need of Moshiach to bring them Home!

Shabbat Shalom
