Summary of Today's Chumash
The second aliyah says that if we sell to our neighbor, or buy from our neighbor we should not wrong one another. Rashi interprets this buying and selling from a neighbor to mean that when we sell, we should sell to a Jew and when we buy, we should buy from a Jew. Also, we are warned here to take into account how many years are left until the Jubilee year when we buy or sell land, because the land will return to its former owner then. The end of the aliyah states that if we observe and do G-d's statues and ordinances we shall dwell in the land safely.
