Peace, Light and Plenty : Intermediate Talmud: Tractate Shabbat, Lesson 33

A continuation of the previous class, our discussion opens with the focus on the Sage who wrapped himself in tasseled linens to welcome Shabbat in style, surrounded by students who didn't have strings attached. Nuanced details about the prevailing Tzitzit string theories are introduced to help clarify the positions of teacher and pupils alike. We then return to teachings about the virtues of Shabbat candles and the unparalleled serenity it provides; finally discussing other life pleasures. (Tractate Shabbat 28B)
