Israel’s Sanhedrin Confirms the Mystery of the Shemitah

With shofars blasting, Rosh Hashana this year included a biblical commandment Jews haven’t executed in nearly 2,000 years: actually counting the Jubilee.

“It is a simple mitzvah, reciting just a few lines, but performing this mitzvah is a declaration that the prophesied return of the Jews to Israel has been fulfilled, thereby establishing a basis for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple,” reported.

“To begin counting the Jubilee last year, the Sanhedrin, as a bet din (rabbinic court), ruled that the Jews have returned to inherit the land as a nation, and not just as individuals. This requires at least 600,000 Jews, equal to the number of Israelites that returned to Israel from Egypt under Joshua.”
