Yom Nili July 12

Today in camp, we are learning about the Shmitta¬†controversy. In the late 1880’s, many of the olim wanted to celebrate the laws that are focused on the Land of Israel, such as Shmitta. However, others felt like taking a year off of working the land would be detrimental to the growth and development of the land. The chanichim learned different approaches to dealing with Shmitta¬†and about how Shmitta¬†is celebrated today. One of the solutions in Shmitta¬†is to grow produce in greenhouses above the ground. Today in our peula, the chanichim made balloon greenhouses and chia heads.
