Profound roots in Israel

| |

Ekev is a paean of praise to the Land of Israel: its beauty, its fruits, its rivers, valleys and hills.

Above all, the Bible insists that God has given the land to Israel and so we must do whatever we can to take possession of our divine inheritance.

From this perspective, the heinous sin of the desert generation was its refusal to listen to God’s command. This does not necessarily mean that in our generation we have the right to displace innocent non-Jews living in areas within our patrimony.
