In Biblical Hebrew, the word for ‘inheritance’ is nachalah (נחלה). The root of this word, nakhal (נחל), also means ‘a flowing stream’, as in Deuteronomy (8:7), “a land with streams and springs and fountains.” These two ideas are connected: Just like a stream of water flows downward, so too, the inheritance of a precious legacy passes from one generation to the next. Such is the connection between the Children of Israel and the Land of Israel, which is their inheritance, given to Avraham (Abraham) and passed down to Yitzchak (Isaac) and to all subsequent generations.
