Jubilee Year in the Messianic Era
Good Day Rabbi, I am writing a Sci-Fi novel set out at a time when the Messiah sits as king in Jerusalem. My question is about the Jubilee year. From my reading of scriptures it is marked as the 50th year in the cycle.
When was the last year, before the loss of the Temple, that a Jubilee year was celebrated? Please give the CE year and the Jewish year if known.
Additionally, does a Jubilee year include the previous Shabbot Sabbbtical year, the 49th year, meaning that there are 2 years of no planting in the fields?
One more: how would Tevia (Fiddler on the Roof) handle his cows during those 2 years? If it was a 2 year celebration?
My apologies for so many questions.
Just a bit of background, from work my oldest son has done with DNA and census records my father’s family may have been conversos who settled in New Mexico. All males in our family have been circumcised as a family tradition.
Thank you for your answers.
