Jewish Sabbath course set to begin next week
New London, Conn. - A course that examines the therapeutic effects of the Jewish Sabbath, or day of rest, is slated to begin next week.
Rabbi Avrohom Sternberg, spiritual leader of Congregation Ahavath Chesed in New London, will teach the six-session course that begins May 11. The course called “Oasis in Time: The Gift of Shabbat in a 24/7 World,” includes a taped introduction by U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, I-Conn., a Sabbath-observant Jew. Lieberman is currently writing a book about the Sabbath.
