This Rosh Hashanah marks the end of the shmittah year. Jewish law obligates every Jewish person to cancel, after the culmination of the shmittah year, various types of debt due to him or her.  This does not apply to a debt owed to beis din.
When a creditor arranges for the execution of the pruzbul form before three men acting as a beis din, debts owed to him or her are transferred by the creditor to the beis din, so that the debts will continue to be in force after the end of the shmittah year, and the beis din then authorizes the creditor to collect on their behalf.
To find out more about a pruzbul and to print a pruzbul form prepared by Horav Moshe Heinemann shlit"a that you can use, please see the Star-K website.
Rosh Hashanah in 60 Minutes
Partners in Torah is proud to present a special educational piece prepared by Rabbi Elazar Meisels called "Rosh Hashanah in 60 Minutes or Less."
 Arranged in a graphically pleasing format, it's chock full of information on Rosh Hashanah, much of it not found elsewhere.
