The following enthusiastic e-mail has just come in from a Jew in France who purchased a plot of land today upon which he will keep shmita during the upcoming shmita year! We are 100% sure that in the zchut of the love and joy in fulfilling this mitzva we will be zoche to the coming of Mashiach and the Geula speedily in our days, Amen:

“We are in ‘Hodech Av, and sim’ha can’t be complete. But, with a lot of Avdalot, this day is almost like Pourim for me. How could I dream of being the owner of a land part in Erets Israël to respect the Mitsva of Chemita ? This is a great moment in my life !”
