“There were ten miracles for our ancestors in the Beit Hamikdash ... The tenth one was that no one ever complained that it was too difficult for him to live in Yerushalayim.” — (Avot 5:5)
Yerushalayim provided them with the opportunities for earning a livelihood. No one ever had to leave with a complaint that it was too difficult to make ends meet and he was therefore forced to leave Yerushalayim.
- Rav Ovadia of Bartenura
Although there were so many people who traveled to Yerushalayim, especially during the Three Festivals, there was no shortage of space or livelihood, for this was the city that G-d had endowed with His eternal blessing.
