Letter from Keren Hashviis

Monday, 4 July, 2022 - 1:37 pm

By now we are sure you have seen the ads for Keren Hashviis. You have seen pictures of farmers laying down their tools, happily walking away from their livelihoods, and turning their eyes to the Heavens as they bravely and proudly sanctify our Holy Land through their unwavering commitment to keep Shmitah.

See the Rebbe's encouragement to support Keren HaSheviis below 

Now, we have our own opportunity to join them.

 Keeping Shmitah comes with sacrifice. Besides the loss of revenue, each of the approximately 3,500 shomer shviis farmers has enormous financial obligations which he must keep, at risk of losing his livelihood for the next six years. Land leases, equipment leases, and wages of foreign workers, are only some of the expenses of these Giborei Koach. Without help from Keren Hashviis, keeping shmitah is an impossibility.

This year will mark the first time since the destruction of the second Beis Hamikdash that over 51% of the privately owned Land of Israel will lay fallow during Shmittah. Thanks to supporters from around the world, including over 330 shuls in the United States and Canada, Keren Hashviis will be able to sustain and support these farmers, and ensure the kedushas ha’aretz.

We ask that you join us in this historic partnership. These funds will pay land and equipment leases, and will deliver the farmer a stipend to sustain his family throughout the year.

Through our efforts, may we be zocheh to see the geulah speedily in our days!
