SABBATH - P/B

SABBATH - P/B

$14.99
More Info

Despite its frequent occurrence and apparently simple significance, the holy Sabbath and its laws are understood only superficially by most contemporary Jews. The meaning and reasoning behind the prohibitive aspects of the Sabbath, for example, are often confused with a slavish adherence to the customs and practices of an outmoded era. In this volume, Dayan Dr. I. Grunfeld, zt”l, one of the greatest Rabbinic authorities of the last generation, outlines a framework for a comprehensive rationale of the Sabbath, following the classic ideas of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch. Beginning with a basic explanation of the concept of “work” according to the Torah, the author outlines the thirty-nine melakhoth (categories of work) and the Rabbinic proscriptions subsumed under them. Treating both its homiletic and legal facets, Dayan Grunfeld presents a concrete, sound and inspiring guide to the practical observance of the Sabbath. In view of the friendly reception accorded previous editions of this volume – due, in large measure, to its clear and incisive style, which the average reader can understand and appreciate – this fifth, revised and expanded edition has now been published to fill an urgent need among English-speaking Jewry. This new edition includes, among other additions and glosses, nine illustrative stories to highlight the messages and concepts discussed in the book.

Shabbat and the Festivals: Journey and Destination

Shabbat and the Festivals: Journey and Destination

$27.99
More Info

Why is the mindset (and indeed the obligation) of Shabbat rest, while that of the festivals is joy? What is the relationship between these widely different modes of being and what do they tell us about life?

Why is it customary to refer to an observant Jew as a "Shomer Shabbat" (one who observes Shabbat) - Why does Shabbat define the Jew? 

Why are the festivals related to natural cycles (months or seasons) whereas Shabbat is not? 

Why is Shabbat one of the Ten Commandments? 

What is the "Neshama Yetera", the "Extra Soul" of Shabbat

These are some of the questions addressed in this remarkable book. Shabbat is much more than a "weekend," and the festivals are much more than traditional celebrations of an ancient culture. This book shows why.

Shabbat as Revolution

Shabbat as Revolution

$27.95
More Info

For many in the Jewish community, the 39 melachot (categories of creative work) of Shabbat are seemingly archaic, restrictive, and too far removed from the logic of modern life. Yet, in actuality, the melachot that define the work that cannot be done on the Sabbath day are strikingly relevant for the modern condition. In an era where technology defines every action (and interaction), the need for rest is vital for the continued progress of society. And paradoxically, but importantly, we are able to find the solution to our contemporary troubles by going back thousands of years to the debates of the ancient sages. Shabbat as Revolution: 39 Ways to Renew Creation and Change the World connects past and present in an engaging, accessible one-volume text that covers every melacha through a lens of contemporary social action and engagement with moral philosophy. In this way, Shabbat as Revolution offers a dynamic deconstruction and survey that brings Jewish wisdom to life for a 21st century readership. This will include tying the time-honored texts to contemporary moral issues of the day as well as exploring the related notions of character development, moral responsibility, and spirituality in today’s marketplace of ideas.

Building character, shaping perspectives, and offering happiness, Shabbat gives us the Divine gift of self-creation.

Stop. Look. Listen. The three stages of a full day of uninterrupted practice, tied to the natural cycle of the sun's setting, rising, and setting again. This stunning and inspiring work reintroduces Shabbos 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 Shabbos's interior landscape, to overcome restlessness, to check the urge to accumulate, to move beyond self-cultivation to self-transcendence. On Shabbos 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. Shabbos enables us to feel hibbat hakodesh – the sweet, precious embrace of the sacred. A textured landscape of indescribable beauty, Shabbos is the greatest, most noble gift we can give to the world, to our communities, to ourselves, and to God.
