Eretz Yisrael Time

Chazal liked to play word games. By changing the way a word was pronounced they would come up with interesting and related messages to the pasuk in question.

I was looking at the “Chomesh First” signs and was thinking, “How appropriate”.

The messengers got the message right. You see the fight isn’t whether we rebuild or return to this or that destroyed Yishuv first, because ultimately that is dealing with a symptom, not the disease.

But if we read the sign as “Chumash First”, then we are dealing with the disease.

That Jewish children grow up ignorant of the Chumash – the five books of the Torah is the root cause of the problem. They have no connection and no understanding why they are here and what their rights to Eretz Yisrael are.

If only they learned “Chumash First”, we wouldn’t be in such a bad position.

So don't read Chomesh first, read Chumash first.
