Why are the physical traits of the Land emphasized?

1. The physical abundance and quality of life in the Land allow its residents to serve God in a complete manner, without worries or distress.

2. Due to the Land’s great sanctity, it has the ability to rectify sins and bring to holiness, as the quality of milk and honey.

The Gemara in Chullin 92b teaches there are forty-five righteous people of whom the world continues to exist.


What is symbolized by the number forty-five? Why does the Gemara divide the righteous into two groups of thirty and fifteen? Why is the larger group in Eretz Yisrael?

The number forty-five factors as three times fifteen. The Maharal explains that fifteen represents the highest level and mentions the significance of three. The larger group exists in Eretz Yisrael since it is the heart of the world and source of vitality for the entire world.
