Martes: Aprovechar el día

Tercera lectura: Números 33:54 - 34:15

Since there are numerous commandments that are fulfilled only within the Land of Israel, Gd proceeded to describe the exact limits of it.


Seize the day
זֹאת הָאָרֶץ אֲשֶׁר תִּפֹּל לָכֶם בְּנַחֲלָה וגו ‘: (במדבר לד: ב)
This is the land that will fall to you [by lot] as an inheritance. Numbers 34: 2


The use of the verb “to fall” (tipol) to describe how the Land of Israel becomes ours teaches us an important lesson.

The fact that we are bound to fulfill certain commandments only within the Land of Israel alludes to the fact that we can fulfill Gd’s commandments and elevate material reality only during our physical life. We do not have this opportunity before or after the time when our soul is lodged in our body, although it is alive from before our birth and continues to live after our death.

Compared to the idyllic existence enjoyed by the soul in its heavenly abode before birth, the difficult and conflicting life we must lead in the physical world can really be seen as a kind of “fall” from a previous height. However, if we use all our powers to take advantage of the unique opportunity we have in this world, we help Gd achieve his purpose in Creation, fulfill the purpose of our existence and, also, greatly increase our ability to absorb the divine revelations that await us beyond life.1
