An analysis of the accounting books at Kibbutz Chofetz Chaim, which observes the shemita year, provides moving evidence of Hashem’s bracha for the sixth year.

From the data compiled on the kibbutz over the last decade, it can be clearly seen that in the sixth year – in the years 2014 and 2021 – the land had a double bracha and provided double the profit of other years.

Shai Reichner, head of the Nahal Sorek Regional Council said: “During the shemita year, I often had the opportunity to pass near the fields of the council’s farmers, which in normal years are full of grain and in the shemita year, all work is stopped, and I am filled with immense pride for the privilege of chairing a council where all the farmers observe the shemita according to halacha.”

  1. Hashem created the world so that leaving a field fallow for one year makes it give a healthier, more abundant crop in the following year. But the year before? That is a nais nigleh!

  2. Where are all the comments about Israel not being a Jewish state?
    Where is HaKatan and his ilk? Never a positive word from these guys when YWN posts articles about all the Torah and mitzvos being observed in E”Y.

  3. Yishuv Eretz Yisroel is a Great Mitzvah indeed.

    We have a Torah obligation to occupy and settle the land. By Moving to the Eretz Yisroel you are fulfilling the Biblical Commandment of taking Possession of the Land which is your Birthright.

  4. Yanky55:
    Of course, many Jews in the Zionist paradise are Torah-observant. Nobody claims otherwise.

    But none of that changes the fact that the Zionist paradise is anti-Jewish to its both literal and figurative core. As Rav Chaim Brisker said a century ago and as as continues to this day, people think the Zionists shmad Jews to have a State (as if that wouldn’t be bad enough); in fact, it is the opposite: they need a State in order to shmad Jews.

    Do you want examples from just current events, never mind its sordid and bloody history? Start with the WZO and AZM websites. Continue with their police and other evil and senseless brutality against our brethren there. Don’t forget about all the Jews whom the Zionists refused to grant an exemption from their shmad army and whom the Zionists imprisoned R”L L”A for their crime of not allowing themselves to be shmaded in the IDF. ViRabbim kaHeina viKaHeina.

    May Hashem seal all His children in the book of life and give us all a sweet year ahead including beeas goel tzedek BB”A.

  5. The Torah dictates the ברכה of וצויתי את ברכתי בשנת השישית in response to the question of וכי תאמרו נאכ….לל.

  6. Of course, many Jews in the Zionist paradise are Torah-observant. Nobody claims otherwise.
    IT IS NOT ONLY A PARADISE FOR ZIONISTS BUT ALSO A PARADISE FOR US JEWS WHO LIVE HERE AMONGST OTHER JEWS… NOT ONE CAR ON YOM KIPPUR AND MAYBE ONE ON SHABBOS…

    But none of that changes the fact that the Zionist paradise is anti-Jewish to its both literal and figurative core. AND SO WHAT OF IT? THERE IS HASHEM IN THE WORLD AND HIS EYE NEVER LEAVES EY…

    As Rav Chaim Brisker said a century ago and as as continues to this day, people think the Zionists shmad Jews to have a State (as if that wouldn’t be bad enough); in fact, it is the opposite: they need a State in order to shmad Jews. MAYBE SO, BUT TORAH OBSERVANCE IS GROWING EXPONENTIALLY IN EY.. THE YESHIVOT, KOLLELIM, SHULS.. ITS UNDENIABLE!

    Do you want examples from just current events, never mind its sordid and bloody history? Start with the WZO and AZM websites.

    Continue with their police and other evil and senseless brutality against our brethren there. A LOT OF IT IS PROVOKED AND THEN BLOWN UP FOR THE jEWISH MEDIA TO CONTINUE THE PROPAGANDA OF HOW IMPOSSIBLE IT IS TO LIVE IN ERETZ HAKODESH.. I GUESS THEY WANT TO KEEP THEIR CUSTOMERS IN CHUL

    Don’t forget about all the Jews whom the Zionists refused to grant an exemption from their shmad army and whom the Zionists imprisoned R”L L”A for their crime of not allowing themselves to be shmaded in the IDF. ViRabbim kaHeina viKaHeina. IT IS CLEAR THAT YOU KNOW SO LITTLE ABOUT IT AND JUST REPEATING WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD.. I KNOW OF ACTUAL PEOPLE WHO WERE IMPRISONED FOR NOT WANTING TO BE IN THE ARMY.. IT WAS NO BIG DEAL AND IT WAS SHORT.. SO WHAT .. HE SURVIVED.. AND STILL LIVES IN EY WITH HIS FAMILY WHERE EVERY STEP YOU TAKE IS A MITZVAH. IF YOU ARE RELIGIOUS AND LEARNING IN YESHIVA, THEY WILL NOT BOTHER YOU

    May Hashem seal all His children in the book of life and give us all a sweet year ahead including beeas goel tzedek BB”A. I HOPE WHEN YOU DAVENED YOU NOTICED THE PARTS IN THE SIDDUR WHERE IT SAYS THAT HASHEM GAVE US THIS LAND. HASHEM GAVE US THIS TREMENDOUS GIFT WHERE WE CAN GROW AND REALLY CONNECT TO HIM.. AND YOU DON’T WANT IT??? YOU WOULD RATHER SPOUT OFF ABOUT ZIONISTS THAN LEAVE YOUR COMFORTABLE GOLUS

  7. Well said @leah2330. But the “kitanim” here have no interest in hearing the truth.

    I happen to have dozens of nephews and cousins who served in the IDF. Not one of them ever even got a suggestion to shmad. In fact, when my brother did his basic training about 30 years ago he had a career Colonel court martialed and booted out of the IDF. Why? Because the Colonel brought a container of leben into a field mess tent which was designated as fleishig. This was against army regulations. Not quite the shmad scenario I read about here. Not one of any of my relatives or friends who made Aliyah is affected by the “Zionist Paradise”.

    Your last paragraph says it best. These guys would rather complain about Zionists than take the land given as a gift to Klal Yisrael. In many ways very much like the meraglim.

  8. Yanky 55. yes, like the meraglim.. some of them in my family too. It really breaks my heart but when people don’t want to hear the truth, it turns out they are helped along this way too..:((

  9. the Neturei Karta should be put in Cherem.

    their rhetoric and soft stance against obvious & bloodthirsty שונאי ישראל like the Arabs endanger the lives of yidden everywhere
