Samach Vav: uMikneh Rav, Part 13: End of Maamer: Reuvain and Gad’s Connection with Transjordan

As pointed out previously, Reuvain and Gad are Ovdei Elokim, whose service is the active refinement of the physical world. Therefore, they specifically chose to possess land that does not share the high level of innate holiness of Eretz Yisroel proper, but rather requires the Avodah of Birurim.
