Yael's Holy Land Reflections


Doing Less, Receiving More

June 23, 2022

Since last September (when the Jewish people celebrated Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year), the people of Israel have been living out God’s command in the Bible to observe a sabbatical year. Found in the Book of Leviticus, this “Sabbath to the LORD” (25:4) is known as the shmita year. But what does this mean?

For many in Israel, it means allowing fields to go unplowed, not planting a garden, or simply letting the ground rest. But while this biblical directive of shmita is focused on the land of the Holy Land, there is a deeper spiritual lesson for us all.

Listen to Yael’s podcast as she teaches us that sometimes we need to do less in order to receive more blessings in our lives.

With blessings from the Holy Land,
