How the Jewish Sabbath transformed my life.
Recalling the day when Menachem Begin stopped Israel’s national airline, El Al, from flying on Shabbat.
As a child I longed for the majestic. Watching the royal wedding, I realized I found it.
I was determined to take Saturdays off. My commander had other ideas.
I wanted to start keeping Shabbat, but it meant shutting off the cell phone I was enslaved to.
I rarely use my passport, yet every Saturday I meet people from around the world.
My client called, perturbed that I'd stopped working on Shabbat.
Shabbat is the day to enjoy the person you have become.
Personal thoughts on what makes Shabbat the highlight of every week.
Shabbat became my life raft, my refuge from a cruel working environment.
My father and I had nothing in common besides the long silences that would pass between us. Then a miracle happened.
I hardly believed in God's existence when I started to observe Shabbat. My observance began for one reason only: I was selfish.
The prom is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Some get the thrill every week.
