The Shmita Year: How Should We Celebrate?

Hosted By: Temple Israel of Boston

This Hebrew year 5782 is the Shmita year, a sabbatical year of rest and release. Mimicking the Shabbat cycle, but on a grander scale, it considers our whole earth system as needing of rest. ‘

In this 5-week online class, join Leora Mallach to ground yourself in text and conversation to explore both the ecological and economic dimensions of such a system. Delve into Biblical, rabbinic, and post-modern wisdom and draw on our own experiences. In 2022, how might we personally relate to a mandated year of rest and reset?
