Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elegant, passionate, and filled with the love of God's creation, Abraham Joshua Heschel's The Sabbath has been hailed as a classic of Jewish spirituality ever since its original publication--and has been read by thousands of people seeking meaning in modern life. In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel, one of the most widely respected religious leaders of the twentieth century, introduced the influential idea of an 'architecture of holiness" that appears not in space but in time. Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the materials things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that 'the Sabbaths are our great catherdrals.'

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [103]-118)

This may be Rabbi Heschel's finest yet simplest work.
To me, The Sabbath Its Meaning for Modern Man is a poetic plea addressed to modern secular humanity to take the time to explore [and observe] the beauty of the island in time know as the Sabbath.
