"I have no doubt that many Jews in America have well-defined tafkidim there, which cannot be done as effectively in Israel. Chabad in particular is known for its amazing kiruv work. However, I have also met Jews who have simply never considered the question of whether they should live in Israel. Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky said once in a shiur that he had been verbally attacked for asking an audience if they had consulted their rebbeim regarding this question."
Tuvya Zahav, Jerusalem, Israel
