The question is often raised why so many otherwise faithful Jews choose to voluntarily live in exile from their homeland if the Torah so clearly dictates the need for the Jewish people to reside in Eretz Yisrael. And why do we sometimes even find learned rabbis who go so far as to reject the very existence of a Divine commandment to live in the Land of Israel?
