所以澳门赌场信誉平台重新开始. 秋季犹太节日已经结束, and we the recall the sounds of the shofar Rosh HaShanah and our proclaiming “Today is the birthday of the world.” Now, standing at the threshold of 5784 as we renew the weekly Torah reading cycle with Parshat Bereshit 澳门赌场信誉平台的思想转向创造. 澳门赌场信誉平台刚刚完成的赛季 teshuva、悔改. 在他的作品中 Halakhic男人约瑟夫·B拉比. Soloveitchik writes that there is a halachic aspect to creation - “self-creation" as he writes. 通过…行为 teshuva, 一个人被“创造”成一个新的人, possessing “a new heart and spirit… compounded of regret for the past and resolve for the future.”
伴随着这个想法，澳门赌场信誉平台看了看 parsha 本身. 的叙述 Parshat Bereshit is obviously well-known, from the separation of light and dark, to the creation of humanity. 有一段特别熟悉和重要:
ויְכֻלּ֛וּ הַשָּׁמַ֥יִם וְהָאָ֖רֶץ וְכׇל־צְבָאָֽם׃ וַיְכַ֤ל אֱ-לֹקים בַּיּ֣וֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִ֔י מְלַאכְתּ֖וֹ אֲשֶׁ֣ר עָשָׂ֑ה וַיִּשְׁבֹּת֙ בַּיּ֣וֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִ֔י מִכׇּל־מְלַאכְתּ֖וֹ אֲשֶׁ֥ר עָשָֽׂה׃ וַיְבָ֤רֶךְ אֱ-לֹקים֙ אֶת־י֣וֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִ֔י וַיְקַדֵּ֖שׁ אֹת֑וֹ כִּ֣י ב֤וֹ שָׁבַת֙ מִכׇּל־מְלַאכְתּ֔וֹ אֲשֶׁר־בָּרָ֥א אֱ-לֹקים לַעֲשֽׂוֹת׃
天地和天地的万象都造好了. On the seventh day God finished the melacha that had been done: And [God] stopped on the seventh day from doing melacha. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy—having stopped on it from all the melacha of creation that God had done.
这是……的引言 祁福式 每周五晚上诵读以迎接安息日. 其中Torah告诉澳门赌场信誉平台上帝已经创造了世界. However, creation did not end with the formation of humanity on the sixth day. 安息日和前六天一样，都是创造的一部分. 澳门赌场信誉平台在书中证实了这一观点 祁福式 祝福本身，澳门赌场信誉平台说安息日是"...“……”“……”... a remembrance of creation …” We acknowledge creation through Shabbat.
“安息日”一词来自词根“永”，意思是“停止”。. 在Torah中，在第七天，上帝停止工作 melacha, the physical, creative activities associated with the building and maintenance of the mishkan, the portable sanctuary the Israelites carried with them on their journey through the desert. 它是停止 melacha即创造行为，实际上“创造”了安息日.
The laws that govern Shabbat are indeed numerous; studying them reveals how minutely detailed they can be. 塔木德的拉比们自己也认识到这个事实，他们说, “安息日的律法……就像悬在一根根头发上的山, 它的圣经(基础)很少, 但是法律有很多.(哈该书10a). 但这些法律是有目的的. My former teacher from many years ago, Rabbi Art Green, writes in his book 寻找我的面，呼唤我的名, “The rules for Shabbat exist in order to create the sacred time in which the transformation of consciousness that is Shabbat’s real meaning may take place… Avoidance of travel, 商务部, and all forms of schedule watching and weekday obligations … lie at the core of the Shabbat experience.”
There are restrictions to be sure; however, the laws of Shabbat are not meant to be restrictive but rather to allow us to experience a type of spiritual freedom that can only be achieved through Shabbat observance, while simultaneously acknowledging and appreciating the wonders of creation.
创世是犹太人故事的开端. We re-enact that story through our actions, as Rabbi Soloveitchik wrote through teshuva
, and as Rabbi Green wrote through Shabbat, when we recall the story through 祁福式
. 《澳门赌场信誉平台》的拉比们把安息日理解为一种礼物. In Tractate Shabbat, 10b, God says to Moshe, “I have an exquisite gift in My treasure house. It is called Shabbat, and I want to bestow it upon the Jewish people.”
5784年开始, may we renew our acceptance of this incredible gift through which we become strengthened as a people and community.
