by Rabbi Yitzchak Schwartz

“…we often lose focus of Hashem’s presence. The distractions and challenges of everyday life tend to do that… on Shabbos, we are lifted from most of these distractions…

The Zohar teaches that every Shabbos, as the holiness of Shabbos settles in, Hashem reaches out to us to help us feel His awe-inspiring presence. Shabbos, in the realm of time, is the dwelling place of Hashem, just as the Beis Hamikdash was in the realm of space.

Each Shabbos, every Jew becomes a Kohen and we are all allowed to enter the tranquil holiness of the Beis Hamikdash of time. While we are inside, we have an opportunity to cling to the Shechina and feel the elevation and inspiration that Hashem’s presence brings in our lives.”
