From the creator of the international Shabbat Project comes a book that tells the story of Shabbat in a way that has never been told before.
If Shabbat isn’t just a day of rest, what is it?
A Day to Create Yourself is a call to see Shabbat with fresh eyes - to discover how it can unleash personal and societal renewal, how it offers us a recipe for happiness in an increasingly complex world.
This book shows how Shabbat gives us the tools to create the best version of ourselves and our world, reminding us that our most important accomplishments in life cannot be touched or measured or priced.
Building character, shaping perspectives, and offering happiness, Shabbat gives us the Divine gift of self-creation.
