CHASSIDISHE STORY ON THE PARSHA
טובה הארץ מאד מאד (שלח יד:ז)The land is very, very good
When Harav Reb Yakov Shimshon of Shpitivka zt’’l moved to Eretz Yisroel, he went alone and returned later to bring his family. Before approaching his hometown, he rested in a nearby guest house for a few days since he was exhausted from his travels back and forth to and from Eretz Yisroel. Reb Yakov Shimshon did so because he didn’t want people to speak badly of Eretz Yisroel that there wasn’t enough food. Therefore he rested and ate healthily to appear healthy and refreshed.
