Pages 33-37. True redemption can only be experienced when the Jewish people are attached to God in the Land of Israel. Penimiyus HaTorah ("Inner Aspects of Torah") deals extensively and almost exclusively with this topic. However, redemption is a two phase process. The first is a physical ingathering of the exiles to the Land of Israel. This is completely physical. The second and final stage of redemption is the infusion of the "spirit of Life" that makes the particulars of Judaism and the people into one entity, attached to God. History has manifested in this way, with the physical return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel. Since the beginning of the 19th C, people have been focused on infusing the "spirit of life" to unite all.
