Devash: Parashat Behar


Now there's even more Torah to learn and explore!

Open the Parashat Behar (year 1) magazine to explore: what's so special about the number seven? What do we do today with produce grown during the Shemittah year? And what could Shemittah look like in your own life?

Open the Parashat Behar (year 2) magazine to explore: What does Shemittah have to do with Mt. Sinai? And how can we responsible for things done by someone else?

     *note that Behar in "year 2" was combined with Behukotai for a double parashah!

Open the Parashat Behar (year 3) magazine to explore: What kinds of wisdom are required when we give tzedakah? And what's the connection between Shabbat and the Temple?
