Milk and Honey
This poetic description of Eretz Yisrael, which will be heard in synagogues this week, has an interesting explanation offered by the great commentator, the Ramban.
He sees a connection between the first part of the description and the second. Not only is it a good land with a pleasant climate and desirable features, but it is also a spacious land with adequate living space. Such a land will produce healthy animals that will provide plenty of milk and fruits rich and sweet as honey.
Even today we can appreciate the special blessings of our homeland and pray that we be privileged to enjoy Israel forever.
