Shmita Stories – Share Your Journey
People around the world are making Shmita real in impactful, inspiring ways.
Join us in bringing this Shmita year to life with stories grounded in the values & teachings of the Shmita year.
What Shabbat achieves regarding the individual, Shmita achieves regarding the nation as a whole.
It is a year of social involvement, spiritual and ethical renewal, and deep environmental reflection;
It is a year of brotherhood and sisterhood, culture, spirit, family, and community;
It is a gateway in time – once in seven years, a renewal of the covenant between humans and the earth.
It is a year that leaves a distinct impression on the subsequent six years.
Let’s build a movement.
Shmita challenges us to create a social and environmental change.
What are you planning for the Shmita year?
