  1. I have a question are you allowed to leave Eretz Yisroel do daven in Chutz Laaretz sounds like saying why buy it from the wholesaler if i can get retail especially since its not like Reb Nachmun who said come to my grave. I think it is actually against Halacha do leave Eretz Yisroel can you give me a MAreh Makom for the allowment of this behavior?

  2. IS there one?

  3. I believe your question is a valid one. i myself have asked the question and for that reason on prior occassion when the idea came up to go to Umman and I was in Israel i came to same conclusion that I should not go.

    However, there are cases in halacah when one can clearly leave Eretz Yisrael and go to Chutz laaretz. One example is for purpose of parnassah (even one of the Tribes made it a practice to go outside israel to make parnassah and from the proceeds they supported Torah Scholars in israel (Yissachar - Zevulun).

    I had such situation just now where I needed to go to Ukraine on business (and after months of tryping to push it off ---- I no longer had a real reason to get out of the trip - so i went). Once in Uktraine I took a day and travelled about 1000 kilometers to go to Kivrei Tzaddikim (Rav Levi Yizchak of Berdichiv and thr Baal Shem Tov etc. in Mezebohu).

    I think the question can be raised that if there is a serious situation and you feel the need to daven by Kivrie Tzaddiklim of such high caliber, that perhaps there may a basis to say, in the context of - for example - spiritual pikuach nefesh - that you may be permitted to go.

    One specific example, for someone who wants to have the promise that Reb Nachman of Breslov to be a personal advocate on his behalf and will do all in his power to say a person's spiritual soul if such person recites Tikkun Kalali at the kefer of Reb Nachman in Umman (and also give tzedakah in Reb Nachman's name as that too is part of the requirement), then for someone (most people) who need to do a tikun klali, at least once in life, then perhaps this is a form of hatzlat neshamot, and thus would/could be permitted to leave Israel, for such a trip/reason.

    i am not a Rav, but I believe this could be applicable. The Baal hatanya writes by Charity that you can give ALL your money to Tzedakah and not violate giving more than 20 percent, if your giving to save your life.

    Kol Tuv and Blessing to all Am Yisrael.
