קדושים תהיו: The Responsibility of עצמאות
- 35 min 6 sec
Yom Ha'Atzmaut always falls out during the season that we read אחרי מות and קדושים. A fresh look at the end of אחרי מות and the first half of פרשת קדושים presents the Divine recipe for our sustained independence and sovereignty in the Land. Not only are we adjured to avoid the pagan fetishistic practices of the prior inhabitants, we are commanded to develop a holy society in which, ultimately, each individual is cared for in such a way that the rest of the world sees the beauty of this Godly community and ultimately knocks on our gates to be let in, to study and to learn how to build an everlasting and uplifting nation. זה היום עשה ה', נגילה ושנמחה בו!
