My comment about Aliyah
was not a criticism. Fact: the Jews need Israel. Israel needs Jews. Fact: The Torah states clearly that living in Israel is a Mitzvah. Thank you for bringing your dollars when you visit. Thank you for helping our economy... I am more concerned for your neshama, dear sister. I truly know that living in Israel is our privilege. We merited this. The women. Your neshama will thank you. Hashem will bless you. Fear is the Yetzer Hara. Emunah is the Yetzer tov. Hashem is the only one to rely on. Shabbat Shalom

B"HLORI, WE LOVE YOU!!! I read the criticisms and felt they were only exposing their yetzer hara! You are great! Keep up the GOOD work! Wish I could join you.

The merit was to live here not visit
I was upset with your post. live here, don't visit. the complacency of the jewish people living in galut. why do less? This business of not wanting to make aliyah for every reason under the sun- it's a cop out. I love your posts but this one- well, it just got me riled up. ALIYAH. The men, the women, the children. No more excuses. It's time to come home for good! Rabbis should bring their whole communities, the communities can bring in so much good for Israel. It's hard, it's beautiful, it's holy, it's a mitvah. Hashem will bless you more, Hashem will not let his precious daughters fall. Have as much faith as the women of Matan Torah, and you will merit heaven on earth.

Moses' not entering E.Israel is irrelavant to spies
Your mentioning Moses' not entering E.Israel in context of spies not and women yes inappropriately implies that he didn't enter for the same reason. He wasn't part of the conspiracy and none of our holy Rabbi's associate his non-entry to E.Israel with the spies.
