With prayer and kindness we will be coming from London to Tel Aviv Today!

Even during the 3 weeks, after all the tragedy we still have to serve Hashem bsimcha with happiness and #inspiration. This will bring good news for us all as well as the sincere mourning we are doing. Keep praying for all soldiers and doing good deeds now!#

Just before the Children of Israel cross the Jordan river on
their way to the land of Israel, they are warned that their
settlement in the land of Israel was contingent upon their
destroying of any idolatry that they encounter there [1].

The Torah is eternal and its teachings are always relevant.
What then are we to learn today from this incident?

During a spurt of missile attacks upon Israel, the Torah
leader of the generation, R’ Chaim Kanievsky, reassured many
people that Torah study would protect the city of Bnei Brak
from missiles.
When a missile did fall in the Bnei Barak area, the news
reached R’ Chaim.
“It cannot be”, he replied.

Later it was indeed verified that the missile had actually
fallen 15 meters outside of the border of Bnei Barak.

G-d runs the world, and times of war are no exception [2].

We have been taught that the land of Israel is difficult to
acquire [3]. But today a person can simply get on an
aeroplane and arrive in Israel within a few hours. Rather
then, physically being in Israel might not be so difficult,
but truly living in the spiritual land of Israel – the way
that we should – is an entirely different matter.

Riding the land of the enemies is repeatedly referred to
as “horash” [4] which can also mean to inherit [5]. If we
fail to rid ourselves of our ‘enemies’ – sin; negative
influences and our evil inclinations – then we do not truly
deserve the land of Israel [6]. But if we behave the way we
should, then nobody can take the land away from us.

The very word ‘Yisroel’ can be split to read ‘lo yoresh’ –
will not inherit, or ‘yoresh E-l’ – inherit G-d. Only by
connecting to G-d do we connect to the land of Israel.

Let us hope and pray, but most importantly act in the way
that will enable us to receive the much needed Divine
protection [7].

Have a possessive Shabbos,

Dan.
