This week’s double portion of Behar and Bechukotai include the many laws and promises of rewards for keeping the commandments.  Hashem commands the Jewish people to cease all agricultural activity during the seventh year and allow the produce to be freely available to man and animal and in reward we will have more bountiful harvests.  Imagine the level of preparation that must have preceded this year of schmittah.  The Jewish people had to prepare enough to ensure they would not starve in the months ahead.  I only wish they knew how to can, the modern solution for preservation. When short on time or ripe produce, I turn to canned products to help enliven sauces, stews and soups and this week I share a Shredded Lamb with Tomato and Rice using canned tomatoes that is easily prepared in a slow cooker and kept warm until ready to eat.
