Description

Views of Rabbeinu Tam, Ramban, Rambam (as explained by Rav Chaim Soloveitchik) and Raavad on whether shemitah is biblical or rabbinic today. [Note: Regarding the true identity of the author of the Raavad's view, cited at the end of the shiur, Rabbi Jachter's basis is Yabia Omer YD 3:19, which states that the Baal haMaor takes this view.]
