The Covenant between God and the Jewish People

The Covenant, which God introduced in His promises to the Patriarchs and the entire Jewish nation at Sinai stipulates the following:

On God’s side, He promised:

– That the Jewish people will never cease to exist (Gen.17:7).

– That He will never totally abandon the Jewish people (Lev. 26:44).

– That the Jewish people will inherent the Land of Israel (Gen.12:7; Gen.15:18).

On Israel’s side, we promised:

That we will be faithful to God and keep His Torah (Ex.24:7).

Unlike most covenants, this one is unconditional. Even if Israel reneges on its obligation, God, in the merit of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs, will never annul His Covenant with us.
