Shabbos

What is Shabbos? In some ways, the bones of the day of rest are identical for many: rest, resisting the urge for work and technology, and an increased focus on the important parts of life. In other ways, each Shabbos has its own timbre, buzzing along to the vibration of its own string, different and unique for each time, place, and practitioner. We each inherit a Shabbos of sorts, a set of associations or implications of what rest means, and looks like, and yet we all bring ourselves to the project of creating our own sense of Shabbos.
