Will The Shemitah Cycle Bring Correction In Stock Market

By | September 5, 2021 7:00 am

The year of “Shmita” or “Shemitah” (meaning: letting go) also called the sabbatical year occurs every seventh September or October. The story behind the Shemitah is that the 7th year is the year of resting and releasing. The year also stands for debt forgiveness to break debt cycles.Then immediately it repeats the idea of Shabbat: Six days you shall do you work, but on the seventh day you shall cease from labor. The implication is that just as there is a rhythm to the work week whereby activity needs to be punctuated by periods of rest, so too, a parallel rhythm pertains over a seven year cycle; we need periods of rest and renewal.

Various ancient civilisations have made important decisions based on one cycle or the other. The Shemitah is also based on the principle that after every seven years of farming land should be allowed to recuperate for a year. And after every seven such cycle (49 years) it should be allowed to rest for two years. This explains the need for money at the end of cycles and selling of investments to meet the requirement. Many say that following cycles comes naturally to us as it is now in our DNA. Even if does not, knowing about them is better than being ignorant.

“The Shemitah.” Popularized by the New York Times’ best-seller “The Harbinger” and “The Mystery of The Shemitah” by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, this cyclical phenomenon takes place every seventh September.

Shemitah, the last year of a seven-year cycle in the Jewish calendar, has several times in the past brought immense financial hardships to the world.

The first Shmita year in the modern State of Israel was 1951-52 (5712 in the Hebrew calendar).

Subsequent Shmita years have been 1958–59 (5719), 1965–66 (5726), 1972–73 (5733), 1979–80 (5740), 1986–87 (5747), 1993–94 (5754), 2000–01 (5761), 2007–08 (5768), and 2014-15 (5775)

The year 5782 on the Shemitah Cycle starts from Sept. 7, 2021–Sept. 26, 2022
