Pondering Yovel and 50 Years Since the Six Day War

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Jubilee/Yovel is the year at the end of seven cycles of shmita (Sabbatical years). Yovel has some special laws: all slaves were set free and all sales of land were returned to the original owner or their heirs in the 50th year. June 2016 will mark the beginning of the 50th year since the Six Day War (June 1967). In this session we’ll explore the practice of yovel and in doing so create an authentic Jewish language to discuss the approaching 50th anniversary of the Six Day War.
