Class: Oneg Shabbat

Wednesday, July 8, 2020 16 Tammuz 5780

8:00 PM - 9:30 PMZoom

with Rabbi Tali Adler. The mitzvah of "oneg Shabbat," to take pleasure in the Sabbath, is a rare mitzvah that originates in Prophets (not the Torah). It's a feeling, not a behavior, but it can be cultivated by concrete spiritual practices of that weave together indulgence and restraint. It exists in a productive and dynamic tension with "kedushat Shabbat," the holiness or set-apartness of Shabbat. We'll read halachic texts and discuss how they can shape our own practice and observance. The class is geared toward more experienced learners who can read Hebrew; but no previous fluency with halachic texts is assumed, and learners at all levels are welcome.
