In a Strange Land

The Torah relates how our forefather Jacob behaved when he dwelled with Laban. Overcoming all the challenging circumstances he found himself in, he remained loyal and true to serving G-d despite them. While this steadfastness was a clear demonstration of where Jacob’s true allegiance lay, it still wasn’t the true fulfilment of his potential.
Vayishlach, Jacob's Sojourn in Haran, Vayeishev, Galut, Lubavitcher Rebbe
In a Strange Land
Disc 173, Program 690

Event Date: 19 Kislev 5741 - November 27, 1980

The Torah relates how our forefather Jacob behaved when he dwelled with Laban. Overcoming all the challenging circumstances he found himself in, he remained loyal and true to serving G-d despite them. While this steadfastness was a clear demonstration of where Jacob’s true allegiance lay, it still wasn’t the true fulfilment of his potential.

A Jew’s most natural environment is serving the Almighty in the Holy Land. And as much as we try, and even succeed, in connecting to G-d, ultimately, we’ll only achieve our full potential after Moshiach’s arrival.
