Celebrate Shemita
shemita logo 1

Shemita year is coming.
The people of Jerusalem need to understand the issues,
and to be ready to  participate in its observance and activities.

The era we live in today is a dream coming true, and 100%Jerusalem is a part of this dream coming true.

Shemita is something that the kedusha of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel raises to an amazing level.

We want to grasp it.
to be excited by it, not afraid of it.
to appreciate how it connects our lives together.
to celebrate the ways in which Shemita teaches us to strive to be better people.

 

We have launched our “Celebrate Shemita Campaign” in a
halachically sound, pluralistic, inclusive manner;
to foster mutual respect and understanding –community.

Walt Disney famously said “It was all started by a mouse.”

Maybe in years to come we will be able to say
“It all started with a tomato!” “Or an apple?”
