Description
 
Explore the spiritual texture of Shabbat and its meaning for our lives today through the writings of mystical masters from the history of Hasidism. Drawing from the origins of the movement in late eighteenth-century Poland to late twentieth-century Jerusalem, Eitan Fishbane evokes the movement of the Sabbath experience--advancing from candle lighting and the donning of white clothing to the Friday night Kiddush and the act of sacred eating. Fishbane also translates and interprets sources that reflect the spiritual transformation that takes place for the mystic on the seventh day--one in which the person undergoes a radical shift in awareness, a journey into the realm that is all soul.
Fishbane offers original translations from a wide landscape of Hebrew Hasidic sources and extended commentary to help you enrich your experience of the Sabbath. He also includes passages from the personal prayers of the Breslov (Bratzlav) Hasidic tradition, special writings that express the spiritual dimension of Shabbat in the language of devotional and individual yearning.
