Israel and the Economy


"Our sages taught: One may not leave Israel unless the economy has detiorated to the extent that two se'ah measures of flour cost one sela coin.

"Rabbi Shimon said: This is only true if one cannot find any flour to purchase; if one can find flour to purchase, then even if just one se'ah costs a whole sela coin, one may not leave Israel!"

(Talmud, Bava Batra 91a)

Have a great day,
