Parshat Behar (Leviticus 25:1-26:2)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/trust_your_partner_20050520

Whether it's keeping the Shabbat holy, sending our children to Torah schools or going the extra mile to keep a kosher kitchen, shmittah reminds us that Mount Sinai represented a bridge between theory and practice; faith and action; trust and resolve. Upon that mountain, the Almighty took us in as His partner in the business of creation. He's been imploring us ever since: "Don't be a shvacher shutaf."
