The Jewish agricultural tradition is built on the most repeated idea throughout the Torah: we shall not oppress the stranger. The Torah reminds us that we know the feelings of the stranger, having ourselves been strangers in the land of Egypt. This concept anchors the practices of leaving the gleanings and the corners of the field; mandating that all are entitled to Shabbat; and observing the Shmita year, in which debt is forgiven, claims of ownership are released, and all food is sacred. Our tradition contains a blueprint for a just and sustainable society in which the needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized people are placed at the center, and care for the earth is foundational.
