In everyday language, the word jubilee is used for any significant anniversary, especially the fiftieth. The roots of the term lie in the Old Testament jubilee laws (Leviticus 25), which provided that every fiftieth year land should be returned to its original owners, debts should be forgiven and slaves should be set free. The essays in this book, growing out of a Jewish-Christian dialogue at the WCC's Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, explore how the Jewish people understand this idea and its continuing relevance.
