Leviticus 25:23
2 ב
כג) וְהָאָרֶץ לֹא תִמָּכֵר לִצְמִתֻת כִּי לִי הָאָרֶץ כִּי גֵרִים וְתוֹשָׁבִים אַתֶּם עִמָּדִי:
The land shall not be sold for ever; for the land is mine; for you are strangers and sojourners with me. [Translation by Rabbi Daniel Brown]
3 ג

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. What does this verse mean by "the land shall not be sold for ever"? How may the land be sold?

2. What does this text teach us about entitlement and permanence? How would it change things if we thought of land as borrowed and ourselves as sojourners?
