Shmita: Ancient Sabbatical, Society Reset
The Torah commands us to let the earth lie fallow every seventh year while engaging with a deep societal reevaluation and radical justice-based reset. What are the deep truths being passed to us by this commandment, and what does it mean to us today? This session will begin with an introduction to the basics of the ancient sabbatical. After engaging with source texts and concepts, participants will be given time and support to apply shmita values to their own modern, Jewish organizational contexts. No prior knowledge of shmita is required to participate fully.
