Yeshiva WebsiteThe Earth Belongs the Lord's
Everything is in God’s domain. Land, people, money - literally, everything! Each time we partake of something in this world, we are using "God’s property."
  • Exploitation through compound interest
    The Torah commands us to not take interest when we give a loan. We should try to revive this Mitzva and bring the Geulah.
  • Inventing Religion
    If you're going to make up a religion, you'd better not make promises you can't keep. Parshat Behar contains a huge promise that only the Creator could make.
  • Moving Heaven and Earth
    Har Sinai is a kind of conduit, a connector between Heaven & Earth. It’s message is that every act we perform, every Mitzva we keep, reverberates & impacts both above & below.
  • On the Mount of Sinai
    Life is never an easy climb, but climb it we must, to be able to stand at its peak, and truly observe life in society in a measured and wise way.
  • The Economics of Liberty
    Judaism has no class system. We are all God’s children, all precious in His sight, each with a contribution to make to the common good.

  • What Makes Shemitta Special?
    Shemitta is special in its requiring great faith in Hashem to fulfill, in essence relying upon a miracle. This mitzva comes with a promise that Hashem will decree a unique blessing in the sixth year to sustain us until the produce of that which is sown in the eighth year is ready for harvest.
  • Shmita - Rest for the Man or for the Land?
    Is it the land lying fallow that is the central theme, or are the Jews who do not work it during the shmita year the focus?
  • What's First - Messiah or Aliya
    Looking at the Ohr HaHayim's commentary on this week's Parshat Behar to discover the answer to the centuries-old question: Will Redemption come miraculously or by natural means?
  • Creators Belonging
    The idea behind the sabbatical year remains fixed in the minds and hearts of the Jewish people wherever they may live. And that basic idea is simple: that the world and all its land belongs to and is subject to the will of the Creator.
