"Heschel's The Sabbath is easily the primary text for all subsequent American Jewish Spirituality." --Rabbi Lawrence Kushner, author of God Was In This Place "Clearly Heschel's most beloved book, The Sabbath is much more than a book about the Sabbath. It is, rather, our century's most illuminating study of the dynamics of Jewish ritual living." --Dr. Neil Gillman, author of Sacred Fragments "Timeless. Read it, and be ready to be changed." --The Revered Richard John Neuhaus, editor in chief of First Things
