Enter into the mystery of the Sabbath, into the wonder and light of the seventh day.

We live in a world dominated by speed and distraction, with demands for our attention at every turn…. We frequently forget the restorative blessing of stillness, our desperate need for rest … a rest that brings us back to the center of existence, a calm that allows us to reconnect with the divine breath at the soul of All.
from the Introduction

Enrich your spiritual experience of Shabbat by exploring the writings of mystical masters of Hasidism. Drawing from some of the earliest teachings in the family of the Baal Shem Tov through late nineteenth-century Poland and the homilies of the Sefat Emet, Eitan Fishbane evokes the Sabbath experiencefrom candle lighting and donning white clothing to the Friday night Kiddush and the act of sacred eating. Fishbane also translates and interprets a wide range of Hasidic sources previously unavailable in English that reflect the spiritual transformation that takes place on the seventh dayone that can shift your awareness into the realm that is all soul. Personal prayers of the Bratzlav (Breslov) Hasidic tradition express the spiritual dimension of Shabbat in the language of devotional and individual yearning.

Eitan Fishbane, PhD, a frequent scholar-in-residence and guest speaker at congregations across North America, is assistant professor of Jewish thought at The Jewish Theological Seminary; author of As Light Before Dawn: The Inner World of a Medieval Kabbalist (Stanford University Press); and co-editor of Jewish Mysticism and the Spiritual Life: Classical Texts, Contemporary Reflections (Jewish Lights).
