Living in Zion and Longing for Zion


“[Psalms 87:5 says:] And regarding Zion it will be said: A person and a person have been born there, and Gd will establish it above.

"Rabbi Meisha, grandson of Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi, explained this passage: This refers to a person born in Zion, or a person who hopes to see Zion.

"Abayye said: One of them [Israelis] is worth two of us [Babylonians].”

(Talmud, Ketuvot 75a)

Have a great day,
