Shemitta Shiur

Our students this year have the unique opportunity to be in Eretz Yisrael for a Shmita year, which occurs only once every 7 years and applies only in Israel.  We were privileged on Sunday night to have a special speaker, Rabbi Alan Haber, come and teach us some of the powerful moral and spiritual messages that are expressed through the concept of the shmita year.  Rabbi Haber also gave us an overview of the different approaches farmers here in Israel utilize so as to keep the halachot of shmita while still remaining economically viable, and how this will practically affect us this year as we shop for fruits and veggies in the supermarket and enjoy eating out in our favorite restaurants!
