Resources from One Table to infused you Shabbat table with Shmita. Every seven days, we’re gifted the beautiful wellness ritual of Shabbat — a day to pause, relax, reflect, and rejuvenate. And, every seven years, we’re gifted Shmita — an entire “sabbatical” year where (biblically speaking) we are encouraged to let the agricultural land rest, free debts in society, and resolve any inequities that may have grown. It is (or could be) a year to restore. Starting on Rosh Hashanah this year (Sept. 6, 2021), think of it as Shabbat on the grandest scale and an opportunity for us to restore ourselves and the earth.
The Rolling Jubilee is a project of the Debt Collective which emerged after the financial crisis of 2008. With individuals struggling with debt unable to access real support, Rolling Jubilee began buying debt for pennies on the dollar - then abolishing it. A bailout of the people, by the people, entirely supported by individual donations. Their work continues today on a broader scale.
