About This Course

One of the most powerful tools we can use to use to remove our ego and eliminate chaos from our lives is Shabbat or the Sabbath. While many of us have an idea of what Shabbat may or may not be, the kabbalists explain that connecting to Shabbat is an essential part of our spiritual work. Learn how to strengthen your connection to Shabbat and energize your entire week!
