Peace in the Land

by Rabbi Mendel Weinbach zt'l

“I will provide peace in the land", promises G-d to His people, "if you will follow My decrees and observe My commandments and perform them."

This Divine promise that will be read from the Torah this Shabbat is the only reliable formula for peace in the land that G-d gave to His chosen people. All attempts to find a "partner for peace" among the enemies pledged to destroy us have proven to be exercises in futility.

Perhaps this annual reminder will stir a nation weary of war and terror to the observance of Torah, which in the words of the above-mentioned promise will enable "you to dwell securely in your land".
