Behar in a Nutshell

The name of the Parshah, “Behar,” means “on Mount [Sinai]” and it is found in Leviticus 25:1.

On the mountain of Sinai, G‑d communicates to Moses the laws of the Sabbatical year: every seventh year, all work on the land should cease, and its produce becomes free for the taking for all, man and beast.
