Aliyah Quote #16: Better Than the Best

The best land in Chutz la'Aretz is Egypt - "As the garden of Hashem, as Egypt"; the best area in Egypt is Tzo'an - there they raised kings; The worst part [agriculturally] of Eretz Yisrael is Chevron - it was used as a burial site - and still, it was SEVEN TIMES BETTER than Tzo'an ... (Kesuvos 112a)
