"I thought there was a passage in Gleanings which states that all of the Prophets have come from the Holy Land. Of course, this may not preclude Messengers."
What's the Holy Land?
I think the piece from TDP p. 85 that Sandra just quoted answers this:
"THE BLESSED state of California bears the utmost similarity to the Holy Land, that is, the country of Palestine.
This is consistent with all other references I've seen. Of course, since 1948 we might give a different answer, but it's still the same place.
