Since Rosh Hashanah 5782 we've been talking about how this year is a Shmita year. We've been talking about rest, renewal, and ways to let certain parts of our lives be fallow this year, abolish certain debts, and re-connect with the more natural state of things. 

Just as the story of creation describes working for six days and resting on the seventh, the Shmita year is one of rest. Debts are to be forgiven, agricultural lands to lie fallow, private landholdings to become open to the commons, and staples such as food storage and perennial harvests to be freely redistributed and accessible to all.

How can we seek liberation through this lens of rest, through the lens of forgiven debts, redistribution of resources, and of letting go.
