00:00 – PARAGRAPH 4. Beginning with the words: ִּי דַּע, כִּי כָל הַפְּשׁוּטִים הַנַּ”ל, הֵן לַמְדָן שֶׁהוּא עוֹסֵק בַּתּוֹרָה לְשֵׁם שָׁמַיִם
Otzar Matnas Chinam – The Treasury of Unearned Gifts.
13:00 – The 26 verses that end “Ki LeOlam Chasdo” (Tehillim/Psalms 136) refer to the 26 generations that existed before the Torah was given.

19:40 – The essence of Eretz Yisrael’s holiness.
32:00 – QUESTION and RESPONSE about the holiness of Eretz Yisrael and the relationship of the People of Israel with the Land, is based on the asara ma’amaros (ten utterances) of creation, as Rashi HaKodesh explains in his first comment on Chumash.
Words need editing at 4:59 pm.
The asara ma’amaros are the path to Eretz Yisrael – this is another definition of the phrase “Derech Eretz”.
29:27 – Why didn’t Hashem just put the Bnei Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael to begin with?
