We do not want to sound overly materialistic. But we do realize that one of the 'Giants' is the thought of leaving all our comforts behind. All that we enjoy and that is familiar to us. It is not a truth any more. Granted, there are adjustments. There always will be a bit of making do and doing without. But that will be true no matter where one lives. The Land is quite plentiful and is more than able to meet the needs of it's Olim. It is the opinion of The 2 Spies, if we can't get it here, then we probably don't really 'need' it.
