A discussion about Parshat Behar.
Show Notes

In this week's portion, Behar, the Torah teaches the laws regarding the sabbatical year and the jubilee year. In the sabbatical year, farmers must let the land lie fallow for one out of seven years. And every fifty years, in the jubilee year, all real estate sales are canceled and the land goes back to its original owners. In this week's episode, we talk about how these laws present an approach to politics and economics that tie the Jewish people to G-d and to the land.
