THE SABBATH – Abraham Joshua Heschel

The Sabbath - Heschel

 THE SABBATH
ITS MEANING FOR MODERN MAN
by Rabbi Abraham Heschel

~ Review by Cindy

The seventh day is a palace in time which we build. It is made of soul, of joy and reticence.

The Sabbath is a short, poetic read that inspires one for celebrating this weekly feast. Deeply refreshing, purely delightful, and overflowing with joy – Rabbi Heschel gives one a greater understanding of Shabbat – a gift from G-d to all mankind.

Six days a week we live under the tyranny of things of space; on the Sabbath we try to become attuned to the holiness in time. Six days a week we wrestle with the world, wringing profit from the earth; on the Sabbath we especially care for the seed of Eternity planted in the soul.

WOW!! If you can set aside some time, the following two YouTube videos are a rare treat – a recording of a lecture that Rabbi Heschel gave in Ottawa, Canada, in May 1967.
