At the end of the seventh year of the Sh’mitah cycle (such as this year), all loans are nullified, including credit agreements, wage agreements that have been converted to loan agreements and rental agreements. One who wishes to collects his loans after the Sh’mitah year must make a Pruzbul before the time that the loans are nullified (i.e. the end of the Sh’mitah year). Typically, this is done during the month of Elul. Click here for a copy of the Pruzbul document (Hebrew and English) as well as instructions for how best to complete it. For further questions please contact Rabbi Zirkind at
