So – Why ‘Shmita-thon?’
Lab/Shul’s study focus this year is ‘Fallow Lab’ – reclaiming and reinterpreting the ancient sabbatical year of ‘Shmita’ – the seventh year cycle that enabled land to lay fallow, laborers to refresh and financial debts to be forgiven. Back in the day, observance of Shmita required a process of preparation, storage and strategic planning. Lab/Shul’s ‘Shmita-thon’ follows in this fallow-year tradition – creating a new opportunity to gather in resources from our community that will sustain Lab/Shul over the coming year, and beyond.
Lab/Shul sustains our souls, nourishes our lives and helps us connect more deeply with ourselves and with each other. Let’s make sure we are able to continue celebrating, building and sharing the riches of our legacy with more of us, and more often.
See You Tonight,
-The Lab Shul Team
