A presentation of the Lubavitcher Rebbe's views on the Jewish people's connection with the Holy Land, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the so-called "Land for Peace" issue

Eyes Upon The Land

Eyes Upon The Land


Our Sages teach that every Jew possesses a portion of Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel. The converse is also true. The land possesses a portion of every Jew.

For this is “a land which G‑d… seeks out; the eyes of G‑d are always upon it, from the beginning of the year until the end of the year.” And just as G‑d seeks out the land, so do we.

In recent years, it has become common to think of the solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict in terms of the formula, “land for peace.” Phrasing the question in that manner produces a ready answer, for regardless of our love for the Land of Israel, there is no question that all sacrifices necessary should be made to achieve peace.

In the pages that follow, we will present a different approach to the issues, one rooted in the principles of our Jewish heritage, yet starkly realistic in its appreciation of what is happening on the ground in and around Israel today.

I hope that the above thoughts, so clearly stated, will inform the State of Israel currently and going forward, regarding past mistakes related to the protection of the land of Eretz Yisrael, the "Peace Process" (most especially "land for peace"), over-regard for the opinions of other nations, and looking to other nations for approval and security. Should not the eyes of all Israel look to HASHEM? May He cover her with His wings and fulfill all of His good purpose for her. Reply
