Think Tank regarding Shemittah

The Shemittah year is coming closer.  Let us set up a think tank of how we could observe Shemittah without Heter Mechira, buying from Arabs, and/or Pruzbul.   This would be a revolution in economics and government as well as the best thing that ever happened to Tikkun Middos. A year of placing our faith in Hashem and in each other.

Shabbat Shalom!
