God In Space, God In Time

The Significance Of Keeping The Sabbath

Rabbi David Fohrman

What is the real significance of the Sabbath Day? In this video, Rabbi Fohrman examines a description the Bible gives of the Sabbath and asks: What does it mean to bring God into this world through space and through time? How are we supposed to "make" Shabbat, as instructed in the Bible?

Join Rabbi Fohrman as he examines the term "melacha" and explains that time and space are the two realms in which we explore our connection with God. Through this analysis, we learn how God exists outside of time and space, and why the Sabbath is significant - because it's the day we bring God into our world.
