Question: Baal HaSulam writes in the article “A Speech for the Completion of The Zohar: “The proof is that anyone who is drawn to the secrets of the Torah is also drawn to the land of Israel.” It is interesting that many non-Jews by nationality are drawn here. Where does such a strange desire come from?
Answer: They subconsciously feel that this is a special land, a special place with a special atmosphere. In principle, this has always been the case for years. Religions and all kinds of beliefs are connected to the fact that it is a holy land.
In addition, even complete nonbelievers feel some kind of attraction to this place on the geographical map inside themselves, and they rush here.
I know many people from Russia who instead of going on vacation, say to the Maldives, want to visit Israel, Jerusalem, these ancient places. They feel that there is some kind of mystery here, some source of special energy for all mankind.
