What is so special about the Land of Israel? Hashem G-d calls it the Good Land that He has given to the Jewish people. Even the Muslim's holy book, the Koran says that G-d gave this Land to the Children of Yaakov.
We are told if a Jew even walks four steps in this Land he or she acquires a share in the World to Come. It is not a large land, not at all; in fact, it is the smallest of all of the Lands in the Middle East. But, like the Jewish People, few in number yet great in accomplishments, so is this holy Land so special in what happens to a Jew when he or she lives here. The Land, its air, its light…all reveal Hashem's Presence more and more every day that you are blessed enough to be here.
