Shabbat

It takes three things to attain a sense of significant being: God, a soul, and a moment. And the three are always here.”  – Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

That said, sometimes we need a nudge, even a serious push, to wake us up to that sense of significance. That’s what Shabbat is all about: creating the holy space in our busy lives to capture and celebrate their significance, whether the place we’re at is a moment of gratitude and joy, or a place of loneliness and loss. Prayer clears space in our hearts to connect our souls to the moment, and to the greater Presence. We do that in Shabbat services at Mishkan with music, with meditation, with the traditional words of Jewish prayer, and by giving space to create our own words.
