Listen On


In this conversation with Tamar Weissman, a Torah personality and sustainable farmer living in Israel’s Galilee region, we discuss how the positive commandment to leave the land fallow once every seven years can elevate one’s broader experience of observance.

Our series on Vayikra is titled ‘Kedusha is in the Details’ and explores the way these laws try to elevate each of our most basic human functions: food intake, bodily functions, relationships, spaces of worship, and our use of time.

This episode is dedicated by Esther Naiberg in honor of the 22nd Yahrzeit of her brother, Nota David ben Yerachmiel.
