An Introduction to Sabbath Agriculture
by Jorian Polis Schutz & Yigal Deutscher
This monograph explores the relationship of Sabbath and land in our ancient tradition as well as the current Shmita moment. It asks questions such as:
- How might the beauty of Shabbat adorn the landscape just as it does our home and table?
- How might the spirit of Shabbat shape us as cultivators, in sacred relationship with the ecology of life?
- How might our spirited periods of rest – through the cycles of Shabbat – guide the work of our hands through the workdays, in holy service?
Written in clear, luminous prose, the work serves as an ode to this Shmita / Shabbat Ha’Aretz year and the Shabbat cycles ahead.
