A word for Lag B'Omer

On Lag Ba'Omer, about 5604 (1844), the Tzemach Tzedek (the third grand rabbi of Chabad hassidus) related this teaching of the Baal Shem Tov:

  • "It is written, `For you (Israel) shall be a land of desire, says the L-rd of Hosts'. Just as the greatest scientists will never discover the limits of the enormous natural resources which the A-lmighty has sunk into the land ("everything came from the earth"), neither will anyone ever find the limits of the great treasures which lie within Israel - G-d's `Land of desire.'"

  • The Baal Shem Tov concluded:

  • "I want to make Israel yield the kind of produce which the A-lmighty's `land of desire' is capable of yielding.

from HaYom Yom, from Day to Day, for the 17th day of Iyar, the 32nd day of the Omer.
