אַשְׂכִּילָה בְּדֶרֶךְ תָּמִים

Oy, some of what he writes is really interesting because it's so wrong.But I did find this interesting:Keep the sabbath. As a workaholic (I check my emails in the middle of movies), I learned the beauty of an enforced pause in the week. No cell phones, no messages, no thinking about deadlines. It was a bizarre and glorious feeling. As one famous rabbi called it, the sabbath is a "sanctuary in time." He really should cite Heschel - he's a journalist afterall and knows better than that.
In the book he does cite Heschel.
