Shabbos - Jewish Outlook

Welcome To Jewish Outlook


The Talmud says, Shabbos, the heilege Shabbos, is a gift from heaven. And you know, my beautiful friends, it is possible to keep every law of Shabbos, but the gift of Shabbos, the sweetness of Shabbos, the oneg Shabbos, the holiness of Shabbos, you have to ask for, and you have to pray for. We all need it so much. We all would like it if in the Holy Land everybody would have Shabbos, but what we have to do is to give each other the gift – the gift of Shabbos. We have the power, G-d gave us the strength, to make Shabbos so holy, so beautiful. I bless you and me, we should give over Shabbos to our children, to our neighbors, and maybe one day, one day the whole world will be filled with Shabbos, with bliss, with sweetness. The whole world will be Shabbos.

The holy Master Rebbe Nachman says: You know why there is no peace in the world? Because you can only make peace when you have so much joy. You cannot make peace with anger. Shabbos shalom umevorach [A peaceful and blessed Sabbath]. Only with sweetness, with bliss, with holiness, will we bring peace into the world.
