“Shmita,” as it is referred to in Hebrew, is the Biblical commandment for the land of Israel to lie fallow every seven years, a year of agricultural rest.
The observance of shmita begins on Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year, which this year commences on the evening of Monday, September 6.
Jewish farmers who don’t observe shmita, besides violating Jewish law, risk losing kosher certification for their produce.
Produce grown in Israel during the year is considered to have a heightened degree of holiness which remains even after the Sabbatical year ends.
PLANT FRUIT TREES IN ISRAEL BEFORE SABBATICAL BEGINS!
TIME RUNNING OUT to make the Land even more fruitful while helping Israeli farmers offset financial losses from Covid, Hamas arson fires and the upcoming Sabbatical year.
“…the seventh year shall be a complete rest for the Land…”
“…I will ordain My blessing for you…” (Leviticus 25:4,21)
