Throughout Talmudic literature, the Jewish people are compared to a dove. Once a dove meets her mate, she never leaves him for another, and a dove, even when her offspring are taken, will never abandon her nest. In a similar fashion, the Children of Israel are faithful to God. The Sages comment that the dove that Noah sent from the ark in search of dry land, foreshadows the journey of the Jewish people throughout history. Just as the dove found no rest for the sole of its foot, so too the Jews will find no solace in exile. Just as the dove returned to the ark seeking shelter, so the Jews will return from exile to the Land of Israel. Like the dove in the story of Noah, the people of Israel have remained faithful to God, and now, after thousands of years of absence, have returned to His land.
