Explore the spiritual texture of Shabbat and its meaning for our
lives today through the writings of mystical masters from the
history of Hasidism. In this lecture, Dr. Eitan Fishbane speaks
about the ways in which Sabbath holiness has been understood in the
history of Jewish mysticism, with special attention to the core
rituals and symbols of the Sabbath day. Reflecting on his recently
published book, The Sabbath Soul (Jewish Lights), Dr.
Fishbane will present these sources as inspiration for our
contemporary experience of Shabbat.
