Shabbat. A Day to Create Yourself
About the Book
A Day to Create Yourself delves into some of the deepest secrets of Shabbat – and tells the story of Shabbat in a way that has never been told before.
If Shabbat isn’t just a day of rest, what is it?
This book is a fresh new look at a beloved, yet misunderstood, dimension of Jewish life. Discover how Shabbat offers compelling answers to the great challenges of our times. But also, how it gives us something more – the Divine gift of self-creation and a recipe for happiness. Ultimately, Shabbat reminds us that our most important accomplishments in life cannot be touched or measured or priced – that our greatest work of creation is ourselves.
In this journey of writing the book, I delved into our sources and found myself looking at Shabbat with new eyes, and that has been transformative for me and my family.
In this book you will learn how Shabbat isn’t just a day of rest, but A Day to Create Yourself. You will discover how Shabbat can unleash personal and societal renewal, and how it offers us a recipe for happiness in an increasingly complex world. Shabbat gives us the tools to create the best version of ourselves and our world, reminding us that our most important accomplishments in life cannot be touched or measured or priced.
Building character, shaping perspectives and finding happiness, Shabbat gives us the Divine gift of self-creation.
This gift is not in the sky. It’s right here.
