The Law Is Key

"It was not the land that Moses had been commanded to proclaim to his people at the outset of his mission as morasha, as the inheritance they were to preserve (Ex. 6,8). The Law, to be translated into full reality upon that soil, was to be the true morasha, the one true, everlasting inheritance, the one true center around which the nation and its leaders were to gather as one united community. Herein lay the goal and the destiny, the character and the significance of the people."

R' Hirsch, "The Kehillah", Collected Writings VI, p. 62
