Aliyah Quote #21: Made For Each Other

From Ohrnet:

The unique relationship between the People of Israel and the Land of Israel is expressed in two Biblical passages: "This inheritance is suited to me." (Tehillim 16:6) "I clothed myself in righteousness and it clothed me." (Iyov 29:14)

Sometimes there is a person who is of pleasant appearance but his garments are unsightly, and sometimes there is a person who is unsightly but his garments are of a pleasant appearance. The People of Israel and the Land of Israel, however, are both pleasant and suited to each other. (Midrash Rabba Bamidbar 23:6)
