Forgive The Loans


1) According to some ראשונים, the Mitzvah of שמיטת כספים 
(forgiving outstanding loans at the end of שמיטה) is a
מצוה דאורייתא בזמן הזה אפילו בחו"ל.

2) Most ראשונים hold בזמן הזה it is only a מצוה דרבנן.
3) Some who hold the מצוה is not applicable בזמן הזה

The בן איש חי
פ' כי תבא recommends, after writing the פרזבול*
one should lend a friend a small amount of money.
When the friend comes (after ר"ה) to repay the loan he
should tell him משמט אני - I forgive the loan.

Thereby he will have fulfilled the מצוה of שמיטת כספים.

*פרזבול not valid for future loans
