"Happy people make trouble consumers and so you have millions of images that we see thousands of time a day coming from every medium telling us that we are not good enough. We don’t look as good as we can. We don’t own the things we ought to. And that makes us feel in a way unhappy. So, on treadmill of constant work and buy and spend and there is a lot of artificial dissatisfaction. Shabbat is wonderful antidote to that. Shabbat tells us one day and seven get off that treadmill of consumer culture and spend time what really matters: God, soul, family, community we are not the minisht and don’t focus on things we don’t have, but celebrate what we do."
