We experiment with Socialism, Communism, Secularism, Zionism, and Post-Zionism. Social, cultural, political, and psychological upheavals threaten to uproot us on all sides until we find our way to the new yet ancient look of our Nation that suits us in our Holy Land, until we will follow the laws of the Torah and not the rulings of a secular supreme court which uproots thriving Jewish communities like Migron from their Biblical hillsides every time a leftist or Arab makes the flimsiest claim of injustice.

There is a natural law of nature inherent in this. Just as a person must be prepared to encounter changes when he enters a different climate, or dives under the sea, the same is true here. When we come back to Eretz Yisrael, we find ourselves in a different situation, no longer scattered individuals and small communities in foreign lands, but a holy Nation in a Holy Land, something which demands, above and beyond our will, a journey of national strengthening, development, and transformation, until we are completely merged with the special properties of the Land, and with our new national Clal-Yisraeli soul.

We are in the middle of this great national transformation today. With patience, perseverance, a lot of hard work, and God’s help, we will emerge the holy Nation of Israel that we are destined to be. May it be soon!

    This should be published and inserted into every folder given to perceptive candidates for Aliyah.
    I made Aliyah twice. The first time failed for the exact same reasons as what is posted here. After leaving Israel, I knew it was a mistake and I begged HaShem to bring me back, which He did. B”H
