Shemita, the Sabbatical Year, comprises a number of the 613 commandments (mitzvot) of the Torah . With today's environmental challenges, these mitzvot may be more relevant and needed today than at any time in Jewish and world history. We will explore each of these commandments in an attempt to understand their timeless wisdom and application for today's world-a world which so desperately needs a shift in our collective consciousness. The Year of Jewish Learning on the Environment is a partnership project organized by Canfei Nesharim and Jewcology, with support from the ROI Community, a community of young Jewish innovators founded by Lynn Schusterman, and the Shedlin Outreach Foundation.
