Sabbatical Year

The Logo of the fund for Shmitah (Year of Remission or Sabbatical Year) of money is in the shape of a Magen David made from palms. The six palms represent the six working years and the white hole in the center- the Sabbatical Year. When you stop holding something -  the palm of your hand is stretched – and this is the exact meaning of the Hebrew word Shmitah.
