The Sabbath
The Sabbath | Abraham Joshua Heschel
4 posts | 7 read | 1 to read
Elegant, passionate, and filled with the love of God's creation, Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath has been hailed as a classic of Jewish spirituality ever since its original publication--and has been read by thousands of people seeking meaning in modern life. In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel, one of the most widely respected religious leaders of the twentieth century, introduced the influential idea of an 'architecture of holiness" that appears not in space but in time. Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the materials things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that 'the Sabbaths are our greatcatherdrals.'

It does not matter if you are Jewish or not, believe in G-d or not, this book will make you want to slow down and allow yourself one day - a whole day - of true rest. No work, no negative thoughts, no running from one place to the other - but one spiritual day that can be spent meditating but most of all with learning through reading the Torah. A day dedicated to the soul. The Sabbath is a remarkable poetic book that I will read again.

“The Sabbath comes like a caress, wiping away fear, sorrow and somber memories.”

This is so true.

teafetish @Insightsintobooks I have been interested in Judaism since childhood, but it didn't hit me until last High Holidays...I am in the process of moving this year, for many reasons, one of which is that there are no gathering places for Jews or people to facilitate the conversion process where I live...yes, please feel free to recommend any interesting books you know of 7mo
Insightsintobooks @teafetish "Jewish Literacy Revised Ed: The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People, and Its History" by Joseph Telushkin is a wonderful place to start and used in many conversion courses I've noticed, at least Conservative ones. I'm not sure which branch you plan on going? This is like a mini encyclopedia of all things Jewish
