Day 42: Malchut b’Yesod

Malchut b’Yesod

by Rabbi Howard Cohen

The Sabbath peace is also the beginning of that peace with nature, which many people are seeking today, in the face of the growing destruction of the environment. But there will never be peace with nature without the experience and celebration of God’s Sabbath. Jürgen Moltmann, God in Creation: A New Theology of Creation and the Spirit of God

Reflections / Contemplation:

This Shabbat as I am rejuvenating outdoors I will meditate on this verse from the Shabbat afternoon Amidah: Our God, God of our ancestors, take pleasure in our rest.

A Commitment for Inner / Outer Action:

Today I will make no commitments for inner or outer action. I will only rest and be at peace with the world.

Rabbi Katy Z. Allen is the founder and leader of Ma'yan Tikvah - A Wellspring of Hope, a congregation without walls that meets outdoors all year long. She is the co-convener and President pro-tem of the Boston-area Jewish Climate Action Network, and the founder of the One Earth Collaborative, a program of Open Spirit in Framingham, MA.
