Rav Kook and Shmitta


Rav Kook and Shmitta

August 9, 2021

Rabbi Yedidya Sinclair is about to publish a book on the Sabbatical year and the teachings of Rav Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook on this important Biblical commandment. Do his emergency dispensations from a century ago still apply in an era of abundant produce and Israeli sovereignty? Were we exiled because we failed to comply and is that a danger still today ?

Listen to the first in a series of podcasts on the beautiful ideas behind this incredibly difficult but literally ground breaking dictate and mitzva.

Coming our way in a month when we usher in 5782.
