Sabbatical or a sabbatical (from Latin sabbaticus, from Greek sabbatikos, from Hebrew shabbat, i.e., Sabbath,
literally a "ceasing") is a rest from work, or a hiatus, often lasting
from two months to a year. The concept of sabbatical has a source in shmita, described several places in the Bible (Leviticus 25,
for example, where there is a commandment to desist from working the
fields in the seventh year). In the strict sense, therefore, sabbatical
lasts a year.
