A Desire Directed Toward The Creator

243.07Question: What does the land of Israel mean?

Answer: The land of Israel in Hebrew is “Eretz Yisrael.”  Eretz, from the word “desire” (Ratzon). That is, the concept of land has nothing to do with soil or the land on which we stand; it means “desire.”

Israel (Isra-El) is Yashar-El, aspiring toward the Creator.

Therefore, the desire of any person or group of people striving toward the Creator, toward similarity and connection with Him, is called the desire directed toward Him, or Eretz Yisrael.
