A new twist on “Land Day” – 3,327 years ago today on 10 Nisan the People of Israel crossed the Jordan River to enter the Land of Israel promised to them by God, in accordance with His Commandment.

Also on the tenth of Nisan – just as an additional note – we commemorate the passing of Miriam, sister of the Biblical Moshe and Aharon.

In addition, on this date in ancient times the selection of the Paschal lamb was carried out, in preparation for the holiday which begins four days hence.

 

Clearly, this is the date which should be celebrated as“Land Day”– and it should be held as a joyous national holiday by the Jews!!

Take a walk outside today and greet a neighbor and wish them a happy Land Day!

Author’s Note: Hat tip to columnist Michael Freund, whose article in The Jerusalem Post sparked the idea of promoting this day as a national holiday. I agree wholeheartedly!
