A 19th century push for aliyah to Israel:

"Why did Jacob buy land in Shechem, if - being on his way to visit his father - he had no intention of remaining on that site?

"It is obvious that he did this to teach his descendants that the soil of the Holy Land must be purchased from its owners."
(The Third Redemption, R' Yehudah Alkalai (1843))

Have a great day,
