Based on Rabbi Kahana’s weekly parasha and holiday messages of the past several years, the title is taken from the verse in the kriyat shema prayer (see introduction below for explanation). The major thrust is to show that the Torah was given to the Jewish people to be kept in Eretz Yisrael, and that the 2000-year-old punishment of exile has ended.
Great effort has been invested in producing an esthetically-pleasing Torah work whose profound ideas are clearly and easily conveyed. The hardcover, two-volume edition – Bereshiet-Shemot and Vayikra-Bamidbar-Devarim, contain over 900 pages.
Rabbi Nachman Kahana is the author of the Mei Menuchot series and in celebration of his 50th Aliyah Anniversary and the blessings that life in Israel has brought him, Rabbi Kahana has decided to make available for a limited time *free of charge* electronic versions of Mei Menuchot, which represents 40 years of his Torah work (leather-bound copies can still be purchased below).
Based on carefully selected weekly parasha and holiday messages from 5770 and 5771, the title is taken from the verse in the kriyat shema prayer.
Excerpt from the Foreword by Rabbi Chaim Richman
“For Rabbi Kahana, a chacham, a Kohein, and a navi, is kol ku’lo Eretz Yisrael, his entire essence is the Land of Israel, and the embodiment of our sages’ adage, “Whoever resides in the Land of Israel is likened to one who has a God” (Ketubot 110:b). Indeed, the reader will find that studying Rabbi Kahana’s Torah is truly to see the Torah through the pure, unadulterated eyes of Eretz Yisrael.”
