This stunning and inspiring work reintroduces Shabbat to those who have grown up with the holy seventh day, as well as to newcomers who wish to gain access to the power of this most venerable of Judaism’s traditions.

It provides fresh, innovative readings of core Biblical and Talmudic passages, as well as guidance for expressions such as melody, storytelling, prayer, listening, and silence. 

Going beyond merely taking a “day of rest” from technology, we are here invited to explore Shabbat’s interior landscape, overcome restlessness, check the urge to accumulate, to move beyond self-cultivation to self-transcendence.

On Shabbat we can find a different way of inhabiting the world: appreciation without grasping, perceiving without attempting to incorporate into the self, coming into place and lingering
intently.
