The Weekly Shtikle - Vayeilech

With the onset of the new year, another shemittah year has concluded. I had wanted to dedicate at least one shtikle during the year to the topic of shemittah but unfortunately failed in that regard. Now that the year is over, the mitzvos regarding shemittah, for the most part, cease as well, except for the prohibitions regarding produce that grew in the shemittah year and maintain shemittah status, such as the esrogim we will be "acquiring" for Sukkos. However, there is one mitzvah connected to shemittah that still remains, although it is not in practice today - the mitzvah of hakheil.
Hakheil, as it is discussed

Have a good Shabbos.
