An incredible video about how KKL-JNF and Israel observe the shmita year. This is how #JNFIsThere to observe this special tradition that connects the Jewish people to the land of Israel.

This Hebrew year 5775, is the sabbatical year (shmita). The seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle, mandated by Jewish tradition for the Land of Israel where the people of Israel refrain from working the land during the year.

“You may plant your land for six years and gather its crops. But during the seventh year, you must leave it alone and withdraw from it. The needy among you will then be able to eat just as you do, and whatever is left over can be eaten by wild animals. This also applies to your vineyard and your olive grove.” (Exodus 23:10–11)
