“What would be a world without Sabbath? It would be a world that knew only itself or God distorted as a thing or the abyss separating Him from the world; a world without the vision of a window in eternity that opens into time.” Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2005), 16.
