Throughout all this time, sages wrote thousands of books, and in all of them it is said that only the unity of the people, love for one’s neighbor, and mutual solidarity will save us. This will give us the opportunity to return to the Land of Israel. Yet, although we have not reached unity, we have returned here. For what purpose did the upper force bring us back?
Answer: We were brought back with the goal that we are obliged as a people, not yet on a spiritual basis of unity, but at least on a geographical and historical basis, to begin to unite from below upward, that is, from purely corporeal definitions to more exalted, spiritual ones.
Thus, we must reach a state where we unite spiritually, and in accordance with this, the upper force will be revealed within us.
According to Baal HaSulam, we were given this land as collateral. All this is for us to begin to return to each other, to our spiritual roots.
