Rabbi Yosef Stern

Publisher: Artscroll


For nearly a century, Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Alter of Ger' s classic Sfas Emes has been the challenging and provocative fare of outstanding scholars. But the concise and complex language and thought process of this classic were daunting to all but a select few. But Rabbi Yosef Stern has distilled these profound; scintillating, pithy, incredibly rich discourses into enlightening and inspiring English essays.

The Gift of Shabbos is a clear and brilliant work. Among the topics it explores are:
--Melachah (creative work)
--Menuchah (rest)
--Shabbos as a Divine gift
--the three meals
--Lechem Mishneh (the two loaves of bread)
--Oneg (delight) Shabbos
--Shabbos as a microcosm of the World to Come
--a commentary on the Kabbalas Shabbos service

In addition , it features an introduction to the Sfas Emes' mode of thought, which includes a treatment of the sage's approach to such concepts as Nekudah Hapenimis and Hashgachah Pratis.
