Yom HaAtzma'ut
Teacher Title Abstract Course
Harav Aharon Lichtenstein Why Did Moshe Desire to Enter the Land? Which mitzvot did Moshe wish to fulfill upon entry into the land? The conventional understanding is that he was referring to the "commandments dependent upon the land" – terumot and ma'asrot, challa, etc. However, upon further consideration, it seems that Moshe might have been referring to other mitzvot, not those traditionally defined as falling into the category of those "dependent on the land" in the narrow sense of the term.

These festivals were likewise established in response to historic events that occurred to the Jewish people, and understanding their inner nature will help us comprehend the meaning of Yom Ha-atzmaut.
