As a follow up to this question, is it halachically preferable to count the seven year Sh'mittah cycle as:

"Not one year, not two years" (like we do when counting a minyan)


"Last year we counted four years" (like we do when counting the omer)

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

  • If I'm not mistaken, I think I saw a halachic article that discussed counting, in general, and it asked this type of question regarding Shemittah (the 2nd question). It was meant as a serious article. Hmm, I wonder if I can locate this. It was a few years ago. I wonder if I should take issue with your linking my serious question into a Purim Torah question ;-) – DanF Feb 27 '17 at 22:19
