5782: We are in the midst of a shemittah year, the final year of a 7-year cycle, when there are many restrictions on farming and produce in Eretz Yisroel. Shemittah lasts for just one year – from Rosh Hashanah to Rosh Hashanah – but preparation for shemittah starts well before Rosh Hashanah, and the effects of shemittah are felt for some time after the year ends.
