The Shabbat We Need

Rabbi David Kasher

Shabbat Vayakhel Sermon.

The laws of Shabbat are derived, through an elegant bit of rabbinic interpretation, from the labors required for the construction of the Tabernacle. But do these laws really give us the kind of rest we need today? Perhaps there is another paradigm for Shabbat, one that can speak directly to the needs of our time–and perhaps it has been waiting for us all along.
