Fields of Dreams: Living Shmita in the Modern World
This exhibition explores the dynamic process through which the Biblical concept of Shmita was revived, debated and engaged by early settlers of the Land of Israel. The exhibition features rare, original documents and letters by the most significant rabbinic voices of the late 19th and 20th century, as well as by contemporary photographs, artifacts and works of art that demonstrate the resonance and impact of this ancient custom today.
