Regenerate the Holy Land
behind the Regenerate the Holy Land project
Many of our Mitzvot can only be fulfilled in the land of Israel... with emphasis on the word land. In biblical times, our society was based on agricultural. Between maaser and terumah, shmitah, korbanot that were brought to the Beit HaMikdash, and myriads of other Mitzvot, it only made sense that a Jewish society was and is meant to be heavily focused on agriculture. This is not to say that other professions should not exist; they always did, always will, and always should exist for a healthy Jewish society.
However, we strongly believe that a Torah-centered life for the average Jew is much more conducive in the context of living on and working the land.
Some may strive for self-sufficiency, while others may simply have a garden, but the bottom line is that Jewish communities would be much more spiritually and physically healthy if we truly had a stake in the land G-d gives us.
Unfortunately, conventional farming practices have depleted the soil, such that the majority of produce we are consuming is lacking in the essential nutrients we need to survive. Regenerative agricultural practices leverage the natural ecosystem that G-d Himself created.
Rather than using pesticides and other harmful chemicals which ultimately damage the soil, the environment, and the health of humans and animals, regenerative agriculture relies upon having a deep understanding of the natural order G-d created in the specific ecosystem in which one seeks to cultivate.
Tapping into the systems and processes G-d already created will enable us to create healthy soil and, therefore, healthy food.
