Rabbi Shnayor Burton recently released his new sefer on Eretz Yisrael called HaAretz Asher Arecha (lit: The Land Which I Will Show You).
In this sefer’s debut, Rabbi Burton writes:
“The product of years of study, lecturing and writing, this 208-page sefer presents my conclusions about the mitzvah to live in Eretz Yisrael. The sefer is not merely a collection of sources and opinions, but an in-depth, original and methodical treatment of this topic that touches on the fundamentals of the Torah and draws on all of Torah literature. Along the way, I discuss the following questions and more:
What constitutes a mitzvah?
Must we refrain from action as we await Mashiach?
Why did a large community remain in Bavel during the period of Bayis Sheni?
Are there situations in which a person should choose to live in exile?
Why is Eretz Yisrael so central to the Torah?”
The sefer is available for purchase in Judaica stores and online on eBay or Amazon
