Welcome to the SHABUS online community!
We don’t roll on Shabbos, we Rock!
In six days, God created the world. On the seventh day, his creating was complete: He rested. And just like Him, we too rest. We stop our creating. We dedicate a day to stop trying to control the physical world around us, and just enjoy The present.
Enter Shabbos. Our sabbath. Our Shabbat. No matter how it’s spelled, without it, the world cannot exist. In today’s society, where so many distractions are pulling us apart, Shabbos provides the “glue” to hold us together as a people. Shabbos truly “unifies all of the Jews” Our cellphones are turned off, and our spiritual antenna are turned on.
This 24 hours of spirituality coupled with a structure of family meals, kiddish gatherings and prayers, establishes the perfect environment for disconnecting from life’s many distractions and reconnecting with ourselves, our family and the people who are most important to us.
Shabbos is an ancient idea that is also a radical one. We appreciate its relevance in the world now more than ever before. Shabbos comes as a solution to the strains of the world – an ancient solution to a modern problem. As communities across the globe have not been spared the devastation of social distancing brought by the plague of Covid, Shabbos is there to unite and bring positivity and joy to Jews throughout the world.
A shining light in a time of darkness. On Shabbos we abandon worldly pursuits and turn our gaze to the riches of our heritage and family. A spirit of joy prevails, all forms of mourning are forbidden. Refraining from work, though it may entail discipline, is considered a way of casting off burdens. Shabbos is a gift that is treasured by the Jewish people, and it has held us together through the centuries.
