Of the many mitzvot (commandments) given to Jews in the Torah, quite a few can only be done in Israel. Examples include "terumot and maasarot" (setting aside some of the produce of the land), "shmitta" (letting the land lie fallow once every seven years,) "leket" (leaving some of the harvest for the poor,) and others.

An interesting initiative named Kinyan Eretz Yisrael allows ordinary Jews worldwide to lease a small plot of land that is either part of a wheat field or a vineyard (there are different mitzvot that apply to either type of field) and to ask the farmers to act as a proxy to perform these mitzvot on their behalf.

Up to 28 mitzvot can be fulfilled in this way.

Many Jews love to have the opportunity to perform more mitzvot, and this initiative also allows Jews to have a personal stake in the Land of Israel, literally. Anything that ties Diaspora Jews to Israel is a good thing!

The plans range in price from $98 to $590, depending on what land is leased and how long the lease applies.

Full disclosure: joining this initiative through this link will also benefit EoZ.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 18 years and 38,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
