Even Kolel Yungerleit


Parshas Hashavua

*ואספת דגנך- הנהג בהן מנהג דרך ארץ


R. Yishmael says there is a Mitzvah of ואספת דגנך 
The Torah commands us הנהג בהן מנהג דרך ארץ

The Chasam Sofer writes** part of Mitzvahs***Yeshivas
Eretz Yisroel is working the fields and perhaps even
other trades that are necessary for well-being of the
inhabitants of the land is part of the Mitzvah. 

The same way one can not say he has no time to
put on Tefillin because he is busy learning Torah,
so too one can not say I am busy learning Torah
and have no time to gather the grain, etc..

*ברכות ל"ה ע"ב
**חידושים מסכת סוכה ל"ו ע"א
***The Chasam Sofer holds that it's נוהג בזמן הזה as soon
as we have a majority of Yidden living in Eretz Yisroel.
