We Need the Space of Shabbat

Elul 11/August 17, 2013 [for Shabbat]

What was created on the Sabbath? Contentment, peace of mind, and physical rest.

(Bereshit Rabbah 10, 12)

 

For reflection: How do we achieve these Shabbat gifts? By reversing their order. Rest the body, and you quiet the mind. Quiet the mind, and you will be content.
