Home Sabbath e-book
The Sabbath manual has gone through
a few revisions over the years. This latest is more
cosmetics than substance. The manual has been incorporated
into a new series called "The Salter Treasury."
Each item in the series has the
title of The Salter Treasury plus the addition of the topic
of the item. In this case it is the Home Sabbath Services.
The Sabbath Manual has been our best
seller from it's inception some 15 years ago. Originally
written for the Salter family over 20 years ago, it
contained a mere 15 pages and contained only the Friday
night service. Soon the Saturday services were added as well
as the Havdalah service.
A good friend, Joseph Good, saw the
book and thought it would be a good item for his ministry,
Hatikva Ministries, to add to their list of items. It has
since became one of their best sellers as well. The reason
it is so popular is that both seasoned observer's and
novices alike can both take the manual and on using it for
the first time feel right at home.
It is written in such a way that
everything is well defined and instructions abound for
everyone to be able to conduct their own Sabbath Seder,
Havdalah, Sanctification of the New Moon, and Kabbalat
Shabbat with complete confidence.
There are also challah recipes as
well as instructions on how to braid the Sabbath bread, both
three strands and four strands. Sabbath songs, zimirot,
are found in the back of the manual and are broken into the
different services. The songs also teach about the Messianic
Kingdom and there are different songs for each aspect of the
Sabbath. Songs for Friday night teach about the beginning of
the Sabbath and those for Saturday morning and Saturday
night teach us about the middle and end of the Messianic
Kingdom as well.
It should always be remembered that
the Sabbath is just that, a picture of the Messianic
Kingdom. The lessons we learn and the rehearsals we conduct
are forever leading us toward our G-d and His understanding.
We are commanded by Him to both keep and observe the Sabbath
forever. This law applies to both Jews and G-dfearers alike
with no difference in observance.
This manual is 5.5 X 8.5 and comb
bound for easy use. It was considered binding with a perfect
binding as found in most books but it was decided that the
comb binding is best for books that are read in services due
to their ability to lay open without having to hold the hand
over the face of the book. It is also possible to fold the
book in half is so desired without causing any harm to the
books binding, another great feature of the comb binding.
