Description
The Sacred Calendar 11/13/2013 Shabbat: biblical holiday, reflected through all of the history No tabernacle, no Temple Shabbat home ritual: takes what happened in the Temple at the hands of the high priest and  brings it into the home Blessings over bread: sacrifices, show bread from the Temple Origins from Hebrew Bible, enacted in the Temples. Traditions in rabbinic tradition which  constitute history With creation: god rested on the seventh day and made it holy.  Heschel reading: Sabbath institutes sacred time Also mentioned in 10 commandments. Recognize that it’s a gift from god Metaphor of the bride, the groom is god. Greeting the Sabbath queen Shekinah: feminine aspect of god (Kabbalah—mystic) Indwelling presence of god in the world: connected with the Sabbath Present, not transcendent  (gendered metaphors).  Sabbath doesn’t have a mate, can’t be postponed Community of Israel is your partner, remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy Lighting candles Lighting candles to signify, welcome Shabbat “18 minutes” before sunset— for leeway.  From the profane to the holy  Lighting candles, have I started Shabbat or not? Number of candles: one extra candle for the children Or one candle for one person By the letter of the law, you only need one candle Women do blessings differently: normally a woman’s obligation to say prayer Kiddush Not so observant Jews would only really wash for Shabbat (differences in denominations) And then wash your hands for the sacred meal Challah Separation of challah: small part of the dough, when enough challah is made is to be burnt as  part of a memory of how the sacrifice would have been done at the Temple Two of them: there’s supposed to be abundance Save best food for Shabbat Braided to make it beautiful, along with many other ways to beautify the Sabbath.  Carrying Eruv wire: creating boundar
