What makes us “holy?”

The commandment to guard and observe Shabbat is a central core value of Judaism. God made Shabbat holy and through it we sanctify ourselves and our lives. Celebrating Shabbat makes us closer to God by using the model of creation as the paradigm for our lives.

“More than Israel has kept Shabbat, the Shabbat has kept Israel.” (Achad Ha-Am, circa 1910)

ואהבת לרעך כמוך

“Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Rabbi Akiba said “this is the great principle of the Torah.” (Second century of the common era)

These prescriptions for living a holy life will bring us the wellness of a life blessed through sanctity.

22nd day of the counting of Omer. 27 days till the Festival of Shavuot.
