Rav Kook's philosophical introduction to shemitta (in Heb and Eng) and selections from his halakhic writings on shemitta (in Hebrew and English), with English introduction and summary essay by Yedidya J Sinclair.
Shabbat HaAretz, first published in 1909, was written by Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, the towering spiritual leader of pre-state Israel. It is undoubtedly the most influential book on shemitta, the biblical sabbatical year, to have appeared in the modern era. The work includes a soaring, lyrical introduction in which Rav Kook sets out his vision of the social and spiritual renewal embodied in shemitta.
The Sabbath of the Land makes this essential book accessible to English-speaking readers. It presents an original, annotated translation of the entire introduction and includes selections from Rav Kook's halakhic work, rendered in fluent, readable English. These are illuminated by contextualizing essays on Rav Kook's life and thought, the historical background to Shabbat HaAretz, and the book's enduring power.
