Thought of the Week
This week's parashah speaks extensively of the praises of Eretz Yisrael. R' Chaim Palagi z"l (1788-1868; chief rabbi of Izmir, Turkey) writes: The sefer Reishit Chochmah [quoting the midrash Kohelet Rabbah] notes that Tanach uses similar terminology to describe the human body and the earth. This is because, just as a person's limbs and organs differ in their qualities, so do various parts of the world differ in their qualities. Some produce iron, some copper, some silver, some gold, and some produce gems. Incontrast, Eretz Yisrael's worth is not determined by the minerals it produces, but rather by the fact that it is infused with theShechinah, which is more precious than gems.
Stone Chumash page 980; Haftarah, page 1197.
Why then, asks R' Palagi, does our parashah (8:9) seem to praiseEretz Yisrael as: "A Land whose stones are iron and from whose Shabbos Schedule
mountains you will mine copper"? He answers: The correctinterpretation of this verse is that, after the Torah praised theLand, it added that if we do not observe the mitzvot, the Land will not produce fruits, as if it was made of iron or copper. The reasonfor this is that Eretz Yisrael does not produce fruits naturally, as do other lands. Rather, as we read later in the parashah (11:13-14), "It will be that if you listen to My commandments . . . then I shall provide rain for your Land in its proper time, the early and the laterains, that you may gather in your grain, your wine, and your oil." R' Palagi adds in the name of his son, R' Yitzchak Palagi [z"l]: In the verse quoted above, the Hebrew word "Avanehah" / "itsstones" has the same letters as "Bana'ehah" / "its builders." The initial letters of the Hebrew phrase, "Avanehah barzel Shalosh Seudos is communally sponsored.
u'mei'hararehah tachtzov" / "its stones are iron and from its Medical Halacha Shiur given by Dr Daniel Eisenberg.
mountains you will mine [copper]" spells "Avot" / the Patriarchs.
And, "barzel" / "iron" is the initial letters of Yaakov Avinu's fourwives: Bilhah, Rachel, Zilpah, and Leah. This teaches that EretzYisrael is built on the merits of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs.
