Without A Gemara, This Is What Happens...

"I realize that I was known in Hebrew as a Chasid Shote. A righteous idiot."

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.
