The special character of Benjamin


“The Shechinah was manifest upon Israel in three places: Shiloh, Nov and Givon, and the Beit haMikdash. In each of these it was manifest only in the portion of Benjamin, as it is written (Devarim 33:12), ‘He covers Benjamin all day,’ all of the coverings [by HaShem] occur only in the portion of Benjamin.”

(Talmud, Zevachim 118b)

Have a great day,
