Practical Shemitta: The Kitchen

Practical Shemitta: The Kitchen

The shemitta year creates a lot of confusion about what is allowed and what is not, especially when it comes to food in the kitchen. Join Rabbi Dovid Fink for this 5-part series in which he will cover the sources and various opinions on the key halachic considerations for handling food at home:

Kedushat Shvi’it: Produce that grows in the shemitta year has kedusha. How do we treat it?
Sefichin: Vegetables and grains that grow during the shemitta year are prohibited. What exactly falls under this prohibition?
Sechora: It is prohibited to sell produce of the shemitta year. How can we deal with greengrocers or supermarkets that violate this prohibition?
Otzar Beit Din: What are the rules for making an otzar beit din to permit fruits that grow in the shemitta year?
Bracha: The Torah says that a heavenly blessing leads to a plentiful and abundant crop for the shemitta year. Can we rely on this blessing nowadays?
