CHASSIDISHE STORY ON THE PARSHA
ושבת הארץ שבת לה’ (בהר כה:ב)The land shall observe a Shabbos rest for Hashem (Shmittah).
A miraculous story happened in a few Kibbutzin in Eretz Yisroel during the Shmittah year of 2015, where it was evidence of the rewards for those farmers who keep Shmittah.
A terrible heatwave dried up the land and caused a terrible forest fire, destroying countless acres of field. It was noticed that the fire spread across areas where farmers didn’t observe Shmittah and miraculously skipped the areas where Shmittah was observed. This open miracle created a tremendous Kiddush Hashem by pointedly showing that “כאן שומרים שמיטה” – we keep Shmittah here.
