Shmita 5782: An Introduction to Shmita for Our Time

May 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Shmita, also known as the Year of Release, is an ancient practice rooted in Torah which obligates farmers in the Land of Israel to let the soil rest every seven years. Fields are fallowed, ownership relinquished, and all people and animals take part in the land’s abundance; also, debts are cancelled and slaves are freed.

What can this ancient practice teach us today? How can Shmita values be distilled and reinterpreted for our time; and how might they transform our relationships with time, money, the land, and each other?  

This workshop, led by Deirdre Gabbay, is for everyone interested in learning the basics about Shmita laws and values.

Please RSVP below at least 30 minutes before the start of the program.

Shmita Project Northwest is a partnership between Congregation Beth Shalom and Earth Ministry.
