Quick Access


We talked last week about seeing Shabbat in different worlds. But how do we understand, conceptually, what this means? The clues may lie in the laws of the Sabbath and Jubilee cycles of rest, which follow a pattern of seven years in the Bible.

In this week's video, we look at Pesach, Shmita and Yovel and ask, where do we see Shabbat, and why does it matter? Rabbi Fohrman follows the clues to unearth the spiritual meaning of the Sabbatical and Jubilee years, one that applies to our own lives today. He discusses the concept of how when the land rests and slaves return to freedom, so do we, too.
