Dear Friends,

It is the opinion of many of our prominent sages that the Land of Israel and the Torah are intertwined and inseparable. One can only flourish with the other, and many of the mitzvoth can only be performed there. Rabbi Yochanan indicated that the Land is so holy, that merely walking 4 Amot in it can gain a person a portion in the World to Come.

If walking 4 Amot in the Land of Israel is a great mitzvah, than we say “What about owning 4 Amot of the Land of Israel?”

Introducing OwnTheHolyLand.com

Whether for religious or idealistic reasons, our mission is to encourage land ownership in Israel by making simple and affordable for all.

Establish your connection for $360 by purchasing a 4 Amot portion of agricultural land, while at the same time meriting the mitzvoth of Shmita, Peah, Orlah, and Terumah. These mitzvoth are contingent upon the land, and are otherwise unattainable for most. Until now that is.

Our sages lavished praise on the mitzvah of Yishuv HaAretz. Going so far as to say that it’s equal to all the mitzvoth of the Torah. The Ramban defines “possession” as conquest and sovereignty, and “settling” as not letting the land remain desolate. So significant is the act of purchasing land in Israel, that the Talmud allows for the lifting of certain Sabbath restrictions to further this goal.

This initiative, started just a few months ago, is catching on with customers from all over the globe. It is also endorsed by a number of Rabbi’s (Please see the website), including Rabbi Avraham Goldstein, Director & Moreh Horaha of Mt. Zion and the Old City of Jeruslaem. Many have purchased multiple lots to give as gifts to loved ones. Some have purchased in memory of a deceased family member. The purchase price is a one time expenditure, and OwnTheHolyLand.com assumes all the expenses and responsibilities of farming and maintaining the land. The price is subject to change based on demand and availability.

“And the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall posses it; and He will make you more prosperous and more numerous than your fathers.”
Deuteronomy 30:5

Not all of us are in a position to make Aliyah yet, but for the price of a fancy dinner out and a half hour of pleasure, you can now take that first step and connect to God’s land, and merit the mitzvoth contingent upon it?
