Shabbat is the celebration of two monumental aspects of human life:

The creation of the universe.

Our liberation as a people from Egypt–and the resulting message that the world can be liberated from all forms of oppression.

In the world of serious intellectual life, in the media, and in policy circles there is widespread sentiment that the current interest in spirituality is a silly and flaky fad that has no lasting significance. I believe, to the contrary, that the growing interest in spirituality is the cutting edge of a fundamental transformation that will change every aspect of our lives in the coming millennium. We are entering a new period in world history which will witness the triumph of spirit over the ethos of selfishness, materialism, and the kind of one-dimensional thinking that has brought our world to the edge of self-destruction.
