From the Book Jacket:

Shabbos is one of the great wonders of the world.
The weekly “day of rest” is a universally
acknowledged phenomenon, but one that is not easily understood or explained.
On the one hand, it appears that Shabbos is simply one day out of the seven-day weekly cycle dedicated for “down-time.”
This simple idea of an alternating rhythm of work and rest is nearly ubiquitous across cultures; in fact, all current civilizations
celebrate, in one form or another, some type of rest during the course of the seven-day cycle of the week. And yet, there is an
obvious but  profound mystery in this.
Why is there such a thing as a seven day cycle, punctuated by a period of rest, in the first place?

A solar calendar follows the objectively
experienced cycle of seasons, while a
lunar calendar follows the more subtle phases of the moon, which have no overt bearing on the seasons or weather.
Both the concepts of years, defined by the solar circuit, and months, as determined by
the waxing and waning of the moon, are
innate to the mechanical rhythms of nature. They are each tied to astrological phenomena that all cultures observe, and all people
But where do weeks come from?
Why does a week exist at all?
And why specifically a seven day week, which seems to have no astrological nor seasonal reason behind it, nor any basis in a universally observable phenomenon?
The short answer is that weeks originate in a Divine mandate, based on a sacred view of time. It is the Torah, in the narrative of Creation, which reveals the existence of that which we call a week. In fact, the only possible reason and purpose for a specifically seven-day weekly cycle is a meta-physical, Torah-based reason and purpose. And yet, the seven day week is embedded in human consciousness to the point that all known civilizations measure time in this way.

By delving deeper into the spiritual nature
of the weekly cycle, and through
understanding Shabbos as the meta-root
of the week, we will come to appreciate more deeply the power and magic that is Shabbos.

We will then be able to open ourselves
more fully in order to connect to the
essence of this most simple yet profound
and mysterious day.
