"It’s hard to explain to someone who has never been there how powerful the land of Israel is. It’s not simply the antiquity. I’ve seen old places before. Ruins are invariably fascinating, even inspiring. But these are our ruins. This is where David wrote the psalms. Hevron is where Abraham buried Sarah. Modiin is where the Maccabees saved Judaism. These are not just archaeological sites. They’re family heirlooms." -Rabbi Steven Kushner of Temple Ner Tamid Bloomfield
