Mishna Keilim 1:6

Presented By: Avrum Leeder Written by: Yehuda Gold

The Mishna states that there are ten levels of holiness and the Land of Israel is the holiest.


Why does the Mishna express the holiness of the Land of Israel by the fact that the Omer, Bikurim, and Two Loaves are brought only from it?


Holiness is expressed in mitzvot and Halakha in practical and mandatory behaviors. The fact that these mitzvot are unique to the Land, indicates that the Land possesses a unique reality where there is no other place comparable to it.
