Parashat BeHar-BeChukotai

Dena Weiss

This week’s parashah has a lot to say about wealth, poverty, ownership, and property.  We are told that the seventh year, Shemittah, requires, among other things, a remission of loans.  Despite the possibility of losing this money, we are encouraged to make loans and are prohibited from charging interest on these transactions.  These are very difficult demands which require a lot of generosity and trust on the part of the wealthy.
