I couldn't believe it. At this morning prayers for one of my cousin's baby boy's brit milah, my mom, who was sitting next to me, had coincidently a page from the Torah's section, Numbers Ch. XXXIV 1-29, (not this week's parsha), which addressed the boundaries of the Holy Land. After the speedy shaharit services, I stayed to copy the commentary: (caps mine) " This chapter indicates the IDEAL limits of the Holy Land. These, the providential, and in some sense natural, boundaries of the territory of Israel, were only attained for A BRIEF PERIOD during the reigns of David and Solomon. Great uncertainty exists in regard to many of the geographical terms, especially those connected with the Northern border... the land was divided by lot." Israel's boundaries during ancient times for the whole West Bank region were then held unified for a limited period and does not reflect the longevity of the biblical narrative beyond these two kingdoms. Therefore the sense of permanency of these biblical boundaries was not part of our history, which means that being flexible about movement of secure borders by the Government of Israel is valid for today's modern Israel.
