How to live in Exile


Gd's instructions to the Jewish people, regarding exile, show the primacy of Israel over any other place for a Jew to live:

"Even though I am exiling you from the land to live outside of the land, be marked in mitzvot so that when you return to the land they will not be new to you."

(Midrash, Sifri to Devarim, 43)

Have a great day,
