3500 Israeli Farmers
are keeping Shmitah for Am Yisroel

Today, only 2% of Israel’s workforce are farmers, but the mitzvah of shmitah is not just for those on the Moshavim and Kibbutzim. It is a collective mitzvah for all Jews, whether living in Israel or around the world.

For 2,000 years the Jewish people dreamed and prayed to return to Tzion, to cultivate the land and have the privilege of fulfilling mitzvot hat’luyot ba’Aretz – the special Commandments of Eretz Yisrael.

Can you survive a year with no income?

The Shmitah Fund provides opportunities to partner with the courageous farmers who shoulder the burden of this important mitzvah on behalf of the entire Jewish people. We owe them our support so they can make it through the cycle and begin anew, with G-d’s help, to bring forth the bounty of Eretz Yisrael and feed the Jewish nation.

Please consider helping these humble but valiant families, the vanguard of Religious Zionism today, who sacrifice their very livelihood so that all Israel may prosper.
