“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.

ISRAELI FARMERS NEED YOUR SUPPORT DURING SHMITA

During the current Sabbatical Year (Shmita), observant Israeli farmers stop working and lose income for an entire year. By ordering trees now, farmers get immediate financial relief and will plant your trees right after Shmita.

“…I will ordain My blessing for you…” (Leviticus 25:4,21)
