Then we read of a distinction between house in cities with walls and cities without walls. If it had a wall earlier, that counts as having a wall. If the house is in a walled city then it will not leave the possession of the owner in the Jubilee but it will if it is a unwalled city.
Houses in unwalled cities are treated like fields and revert back to the previous owner in the year of the jubilee.
We learn that “And, [regarding] the cities of the Levites, the houses of their inherited cities shall forever have a [right of] redemption for the Levites.” —Leviticus 25:29
I am surprised that the Levites have special privileges. But they are the priests. Still, it makes one wonder if they wrote this part of the Torah for their benefit.
Why should walled cities have different rules? Because the property might be more valuable because it is protected more from outsiders?
"If your brother becomes destitute ... you shall support him ....” —Leviticus 25-35
Nor should you charge your brother interest.
The last line is curious, “To be a God to you” (Chabad.org) or “To be your God.” (Reform Torah) Is the suggestion here that this is not the God of all people?
The commentary tells us “but anyone who leaves it [the land of Israel] [without halachic permission] is like one who worships idols.” — [Torath Kohanim 25:77; Keth. 110b]
Does this have anything to do with religion in a spiritual matter? It just seems like laws, however arbitrary they might be. By signing God's name to these laws, I suspect some might take them more seriously.
