The Land of Israel: Glittering like Diamonds

Sunflowers Sunflower field in the Jezreel Valley

Our sages mention five special attributes about our beloved Land of Israel, as follows:

1. If a person is on a high enough spiritual level, he'll be able to see that the rocks of Eretz Yisrael glitter like diamonds (Be'er Maim Chaim - Rebbe Chaim of Chernovitz).

2. The soil of Eretz Yisrael is holier than the sky of Chutz L'aretz (lands outside of Israel) (Chasam Sopher).

3. The Gemara says (Berachos 59a) that since the destruction of the holy Temple, the sky has lost its purity; The Shatzer Rebbe ob"m (Da'as Sholom) says that the Gemara is speaking about Chutz L'aretz, and that the skies of Eretz Yisrael maintain their purity forever.

4. The world is like a funnel, where all prayers are channeled into Eretz Yisrael, and arise to the heavens from Eretz Yisrael (Aravei Nachal, Zohar).

5. Eretz Yisrael is so holy, that saying anything derogatory about it is virtually unforgivable; the slander of Eretz Yisrael lengthens the diaspora (Melitzer Rebbe shlit'a).

We here at the Beams send our blessings to all of you who are preparing to make aliya and may Hashem help you be successful.

is this a real picture, R Lazer?

What a beautiful scene !

A part of the hologram that is the unfolding Planetary Ganeden. There is a long, long way to go but there exists as at mid-August 2010 all the things required to unfold the true potential of humankind over the coming decades. World Peace 2050 is the divine mission. The Holy Land must fulfil its role of being a platform of peace, stability, order and expansiveness for the entire world. Prayer, vigilance and right action will see us all through.


Were too sick to leave ! Hashem gave edom sports in this generation so they wouldnt be bored and kill us business as usual . When he takes us out as the prophecies say wheather its the torah , isaiah , ovadia , gra , ramchal , yaakov abuchatzeira , rebbe chabad then we will the FULLY actualy be able to leave fully B"D , and maybe yes maybe then our enemies and Hashems enemies will be no more . Weve been put here to refine sparks and souls , secular zionism oviousely hurt our connection greatly . Despite this your words on eretz yisrael are beautiful and correct may we merit it soon !

Please G-d soon, we will be there. My husband and I are busy making Aliyah plans - looking at different communities where we might fit in, job opportunities, and the like. I have a friend who told me, "Just keep putting one foot in front of the other," and Hashem will do the rest. Thanks to the Rav for his bracha on coming to the land of Israel!


May Hakadosh Baruch Hu, bless you Israel!!!
I pray to HaShem to give me the merit to get yo know you... hopefully soon!!
Bezrat HaShem.
