Behar

The Torah commands the cessation of farming the Land of Israel every seven years. This 'Shabat' for the land is called Shmitah. (5754 was a Shmittah year in Israel.) After every seventh Shmitah, the fiftieth year, Yovel (Jubilee), is announced with the sounds of the shofar on Yom Kipur; this was also a year for the land to lie fallow. HaShem promises to provide a bumper crop prior to the Shmitah and Yovel years to sustain the Jewish people.
