Shmita is a year-long Sabbatical practice that was introduced in the Torah and occurs on the last year of a seven-year cycle. This year is a Shmita year, the 7th year, which means that we will be holding different workshops to learn about how the values of Shmita can help you grow as an individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
The Shmita Series will be held on Sundays, 10:30 - 12:30pm. Register for one, or all of the workshops!
