  • Where can we remind ourselves that we are living in the year of the Shmita, the year-long Shabbat for the Earth? Feeling satiated after eating is just the moment when one is liable to become self-satisfied and forget that one’s nourishment is due to the vast and complex interconnections of all rooted in and wovenby the Source of All life. This is the reason for blessings after meals, and this is why during the shmita year we must remind ourselves that the Earth too depends on our mindfulness, everyday for its welfare as the home for us and all our fellow human and non-human passengers on our Earth.
