“Why another book on the Sabbath?... My intention in presenting this book is to extract from the radiant crown of the Sabbath one gem that needs, I believe, further polishing to release its brilliance and beauty. The Sabbath invites us all to lend our hearts and minds to the task of renewed discovery within its limitless layers of holiness and blessing, of a most dazzling jewel on Sabbathʼs sacred tiara- the gem of gratefulness. What infuses the many facets of the Sabbath is the underlying opportunity it offers to rediscover life as a gift, experience gratitude for being alive, and articulatie this gratefulness in many expressive and heartfelt ways.”

“ I write this essay on the Sabbath as a humble “midrash,” a commentary, on a sacred text, Heschelʼs “The Sabbath,” and as a belated response of a grateful heart to a “poet” who has enlightened not only the hearts of Jews everywhere but the soul of all humanity as well.”
