Today’s Learning

The topic of today’s learning is About Shemitah. It was contributed by Leeyat.

I celebrated Shemitah during a year abroad in Israel. When I ate fruits or vegetables produced in Israel, I placed any leftovers in a special Shemitah box. The experience made me appreciate our planet because it reminded me about the long process it took for these fruits and vegetables to get from the ground to my plate.
