Summary of Today's Chumash
The sixth aliyah states the law of the Jewish bondsman who, because of his poverty, sells himself to us. In short, we are not permitted to treat him with rigor as with slaves, but on the contrary, we are to treat him as a hired servant doing reasonable and necessary work for us, and they are to be released in the Jubilee year.
