Eim Habanim Semeichah Shiur 18: Banging on the Door
(This shiur studies the classic work of Rav Yissachar Teichtal on the importance of settling the Land of Israel, following the Hebrew text with English translation.)
The image of Kol Dodi Dofek employed by the Rav conjures up a picture of gentle knocking on the door; the gentleman softly trying to awake his beloved from her sleep. Rav Teichtal sees the image in a far more jarring manner, reflecting his view that Jewish suffering is always intended to return us to our roots.
