really liked it
Read in September, 2009

Very interesting perspective on the Sabbath Day (Shabbat) in Judaism. Says Heschel, our world is too focused on space and things, sanctifying space and things. Shabbat, however, teaches that what should be sanctified and honored is time. It's all about a perfect moment in time, a moment that propels one forward for the rest of the days. It's a classic work and a quick read. It has my sincerest approval.
