Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
What does the large letter lamed teach us?
וַיִּתְּשֵׁ֤ם ה֙ מֵעַ֣ל אַדְמָתָ֔ם בְּאַ֥ף וּבְחֵמָ֖ה וּבְקֶ֣צֶף גָּד֑וֹל וַיַּשְׁלִכֵ֛ם אֶל־אֶ֥רֶץ אַחֶ֖רֶת כַּיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה׃
The LORD uprooted them from their soil in anger, fury, and great wrath, and cast them into another land, as is still the case.”
The large letter lamed, in the word “vayashlichem/and he exiled them” alludes to the fact that the exile would be long, severe, and end up sending the Jewish people to all four corners of the world.
One opinion in the Talmud sees in this verse an allusion to the 10 “Lost Tribes”.
According to this approach, they will never be redeemed. Even in the Messianic era they will be “exiled to another land”.
