Aaron Freeman, who advertises himself as the “funniest Black Jew on National Public Radio” has this insightful piece on the The REAL Jewish Conspiracy. He calls on Jews to bring out their “secret weapon: Shabbat”. He maintains that the goal of Sabbath-keeping is to party-hearty. His point is well-made and applies, as well, to those Christians who strive to keep God’s Law (though on a different day). We are more attracted to what is beautiful than what is philosophically or theologically true. We can argue all we want that the Sabbath should be kept holy, but a hearty Sabbath party is more persuasive than ten dry-as-dust Puritan treatises.
