Shmita Stories – Share Your Journey
The teachings of Shmita relate to land, food, debt, work-and-rest, equality, and time – all of which resonate with crises we face today. While we may not solve these issues on a global scale, Jewish tradition and the teachings of Shmita offer unique insights that can help us build a healthy, sustainable, and equitable world.
As part of the Shmita Project, we have been gathering experiences, projects, works of art, stories, and snapshots of the ways people all over the world bring the rich traditions of Shmita to life. Below we offer some of these stories for inspiration and motivation as you consider how you would like to individually, organisationally, or communally celebrate the sabbatical year.
We invite you to browse the stories shared and share your own!
