From Avoiding to Embracing: Rav Kook and the Future of Shmita

Hosted By: Valley Beit Midrash

“Shabbat Ha’aretz” by Rav Kook is the most influential book in 800 years about Shmita, one of Judaism’s most radical and transformative ideas. Rabbi Yedidya Sinclair, whose new book on Shabbat Ha’aretz has just come out from Maggid Press, joins us to discuss why Rav Kook’s thinking was so critical, and how it points the way to the creative renewal of shmita’s socio-economic and ecological dimensions that we are starting to see today.
