Why did Hashem create Medinas Yisroel?
Hakodosh Boruch Hu is doing things that have more than one purpose. In the beginning Medinas Yisroel served as a place where many Jews came. In the meantime it became a haven.
But at the same time, it was a test. It’s an ordeal. Had they utilized it properly, it could have been a great gift. But if it’s misused, so it’s like taking any good thing Hakodosh Boruch Hu gives to you which you could have utilized to do very great things and you didn’t. So they failed. They failed and today it’s not even a safe haven for Jews. Today the Am Yisroel is suffering from Medinas Yisroel.
