Collection
The Shmita year began on Rosh Hashanah 2021. Join me as we go on a journey through the yearly Torah cycle as it relates to Shmita. While Shmita is only one-year of a seven-year cycle, its values present the core of the Torah's vision of a society that opposes the concentration of wealth and power, and promotes justice, equity, and chesed, lovingkindness, for people and the earth.
