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.


A mountain with the sun rising above it

A Mountain of Light

A Mountain of Light

Trugman, Rabbi Avraham Arieh
May 20, 2022

“The Torah which was given at Mount Sinai is itself referred to light. Thus, there exists a deep and essential synergy between the infinite light of God as revealed in the Torah and the physical, material world that God has created.


 Shabbat is the ladder connecting heaven and earth, God and man, physicality and spirituality, body and soul. The light of Shabbat in time and the light of Shabbat in space, represented by the Sabbatical year, reveal the ultimate oneness and unity of all reality.”
