WELCOMING SHABBAT

Shabbat is more than a day of refraining from worldly activity.

When experienced to its spiritual fullest, its holiness enlightens all other days of the week.

We invite you to enhance your Shabbat with these words of Torah.

“The study of Torah requires intense concentration, and detachment from any outside concerns or distractions. This too is comparable to the Aron, hidden away in the Kodesh Hakadashim, the Holy of Holies in the Mishkan, which was off-limits to all but the Kohen Gadol (and even he, only once a year.)

 

The Aron teaches us, however, that one must always be readily mobile—even while wholly engrossed in the study of Torah. This means that our immersion in Torah study must be pervaded by a readiness and willingness to embark, if necessary, to bring the Torah to any Jew that it has not yet reached.”
