– December 14, 2021
Time: 8:00 pm
Join Jessica Valoris, Rabbi David Jaffe, and Yehudah Webster to explore Shmita’s Torah mandate to release debts every 7 years and how applying this practice today can help break cycles of racist economic exploitation and build the spiritual muscle of release. This event is hosted by Jewish Emergent Network, The Inside Out Wisdom and Action Project, and Black Jewish Liberation Collective—in partnership with Hazon, Reboot, and Shmita Yisraelit—as part of a year-long initiative honoring Shmita conceived by Jewish Emergent Network. Through this initiative, in winter 2021-2022, we are lifting up issues of racial justice in This Land, with the values of Shmita as our guidepost.
