  • The Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai: Speak to the Israelite people and say to them: When you enter the land that I assign to you, the land shall observe a sabbath of the Lord. Six years you may sow your field and six years you may prune your vineyard and gather in the yield. But in the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath of complete rest, a sabbath of the Lord: you shall not sow your field or prune your vineyard. You shall not reap the aftergrowth of your harvest or gather the grapes of your untrimmed vines; it shall be a year of complete rest for the land. But you may eat whatever the land during its sabbath will produce--you, your male and female slaves, the hired and bound laborers who live with you, and your cattle and the beasts in your land may eat all its yield. You shall count off seven weeks of years--seven times seven years--so that the period of seven weeks of years gives you a total of forty-nine years. Then you shall sound the horn loud; in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month--the Day of Atonement--you shall have the horn sounded throughout your land and you shall hallow the fiftieth year. You shall proclaim release throughout the land for all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you: each of you shall return to his holding and each of you shall return to his family. That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you: you shall not sow, neither shall you reap the aftergrowth or harvest the untrimmed vines, for it is a jubilee. It shall be holy to you: you may only eat the growth direct from the field. In this year of jubilee, each of you shall return to his holding.


    Leviticus 25:1-25:13
  • Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and he will teach us of his ways… And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks…


    The Tanakh, Micah 4:2-5 jewishvirtuallibrary.org

Daily Jewish Quote
Souls wait up in heaven for thousands of years, longing for their moment upon this earth to do another soul a favor. Angels burn with jealousy each time a human being turns himself around and creates beauty in this world. Heaven is nice, but on the best things, earth has exclusive rights. end quote
-Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn
