Twelve righteous men are sent to "spy" on the land of Israel.

Ten return with an evil report, slandering the land of Israel.

What went wrong?

Narrow and short-sighted self-interest?

Or was there a fundamental misunderstanding of Torah and G-d's expectations of man in this world?

Our generation today has been granted by G-d the opportunity to repair the devastating damage of the evil report and bring His light into the world.
