Superiority of Israel

 Derashos HaRan (04): The prayers of those who live outside of Israel are not so readily heard compared to those who live in Israel. It also follows from this that it is easier to sin with idol worship outside of Israel. Just as it is best to be attached to G d in Israel than outside of Israel - it is easier to rebel against G d outside of Israel and thus be subject to annihilation. … This is not like those “pious” people who mistakenly insist that the religious experience is identical in all places both for the good and bad. …

  1. Ironic then that another "Ran" later said that praying at his kever in a forsaken part of the Ukraine would actually provide a superior religious experience.
