Shabbat: Time Vs. Space

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called “Shabbat: Time Vs. Space.”

When we choose to keep the Sabbath, we mark a day of the week in time, where we reject all the worldly pursuits of space and materialism in lieu of recognizing that there is a higher power, G-d Almighty, and that as Ahmari says ‘everything else is ephemeral and passes away with time.’

What we do to make things holy in time rules over what we do purely physically in space, that nothing but G-d is timeless, and everything material reverts back to its origins and is gone from time as if it never even was. In the end, we need to live our lives with the forethought that the spirit goes to the everlasting afterlife, but the body goes to the physical grave.

Geometric Shapes Inspire

I like these geometric shapes sort of just hanging out there. 

They’re interesting in that they speak to a person, but it’s left up to your imagination what they are actually saying. 

Feels a little futuristic and from alien space. 

Words may mean nothing, but shapes can be a universal language. 

Go figure!  šŸ˜‰

Just About Says It All


Story of human civilization in 2 minutes by Joe Bush



History majors can probably add some, but overall completely awesome!



Maybe this is a glimpse of what it’s like to have a G-d’s eye view of the world–where time and space are inconsequential.Ā 



Looking at this, are we almost at the end or are we just on the verge of a new beginning? Ā šŸ˜‰
