ABOUT THE SHMITAH FUND
We support Israeli farmers and their families as they fulfill this important communal mitzvah at the heart of Shivat Tzion.
Through our partners in Israel, we provide support directly to Israeli’s farmers through stipends, educational and moral support as well as oversight in implementing the halachot of Shmitah.

By educating the broader Jewish community about the meaning and importance of Shmitah, and shining a spotlight on the heroic farmers in the front lines of its observance, The Shmitah Fund advocates for the return of this foundational mitzvah to the center of Jewish communal life, both as the collective responsibility of all of Klal Yisrael, and as a reminder of the just, compassionate and G-d fearing society the Torah envisions.
