Nachum hosted Rabbi Yisroel Besser to discuss his latest ArtScroll release, “Exalted Moments: Welcoming Shabbos: Stories, inspiration, and insights.”
From the ArtScroll website:
It’s the wondrous song of Shabbos. And it’s coming, with its blessings and its peace and its delights and its beauty.
Erev Shabbos. Yes, it’s a time of rushing to get everything done. But when Yisroel Besser describes the frenetic activity, Erev Shabbos becomes, not a tension-filled, stressful race against time — but an enthusiastic and joyous preparation for the incomparable delights of Shabbos.
And then we welcome our Queen, with flickering candles and uplifting song. Here, again, as we enter a new and holy dimension, Exalted Moments enriches our experience, bringing our tefillos and bakashos to life.
In Exalted Moments, Yisroel Besser – author of many bestselling books including Nishmas: Song of the Soul – shows us how to experience those special first moments of Shabbos. Exalted Moments includes stories, ideas and insights on erev Shabbos preparations, the enormous power of prayer during candle lighting, Shalom Aleichem, Eishes Chayil and Kiddush.
Open this book and learn to savor those first wondrous moments, as the sun gently drifts downward and we begin to experience the energy, hope and sheer holiness of Shabbos.
