Shabbat Shalom!

A king built a bridal chamber, plastered, painted and adorned it.

Now what was needed to complete it?

Why, a bride!

So with the world, after the six days of creation, what was needed to finish it?

The Shabbat!

-Ber. R., 10.9


One whose soul yearns to cleave to G-d constantly and desires that G-d’s presence dwell within him, let him commit parts of the Torah to memory so that it will be constantly with him.

-Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi
