Israel was intended to be an agrarian society. The Torah strengthens the people’s connection to the Land of Israel through various agricultural celebrations, commemorations, and obligations. The Torah commands the Israelites to set aside a certain portion of their crops grown in the Land of Israel for the poor. The corners of their fields, the forgotten sheaves and the grains that fall during harvest are all to be left for the needy. This Biblical imperative is still practiced in Israel today. Each season, farmers throughout Israel leave millions of pounds of produce from their fields, which are collected by volunteers and distributed to poor people all over the country.
