A Year of Rest: Shmita Exhibit

Tuesday, January 18 @ 9:00 amWednesday, March 23 @ 9:00 am

Osher Marin JCC
CA United States
What would you do with a year of rest, release, renewal? This year in the Jewish calendar is a shmita or sabbatical year. Hazon’s Shmita Project seeks to expand awareness about the biblical Sabbatical tradition and to elevate the role that shmita, the year of rest in a seven-year cycle of Jewish life, plays in today’s society. Shmita asks us to examine our relationships with land, food, debt, work/rest, equity, and more. The works on display in our Shmita exhibit were curated from submissions to the Shmita Prize to challenge the audience to consider the relevancy and application of shmita values in our contemporary world. We hope that by engaging with these works the viewer will consider how to prepare for, mark, and engage with the shmita year.
