Imagine you were chosen to star in a big-league sporting championship.
You really want to accept the great honor, but there’s a problem — you don’t know how to play this sport. When you ask a friend for the rules and instructions, he tells you all the things you cannot do but neglects to tell you what you are supposed to do! Wouldn’t you consider the instructions to be terribly inadequate?
Now suppose you were chosen to be a part of the nation who was given the great gift of Shabbos. Would you consider it sufficient to study only all that you may not do on the holy day, without learning all that you should do when it arrives?
That’s where this book comes into play. 39 Things You Can Do on Shabbos takes readers on a journey of discovery — to learn about dozens of uplifting activities one can engage in specifically when it’s Shabbos. Elaborating on ideas from ancient commentators to contemporary writers, from simple expositions to Kabbalistic explanations, Rabbi Shaya Winiarz enlightens readers with the words of the wise, bringing them to a greater and more inspired Shabbos experience.

This is an amazing Sefer for people of all ages and backgrounds. There is something in it for everyone. I’ve used it to give Divrei Torah at the Shabbos meal as well as to learn more about the special day of Shabbos. It is such an enjoyable read and something that I plan on continuing to share with my family and friends.

We all know it is rare to find a book that is equally useful to both the scholar and the interested layperson, but Rabbi Shaya Winiarz has managed to accomplish this difficult feat. His most recent book, “39 Things You Can Do On Shabbos”, while appealing to the more learned among us with its plethora of citations from sources both older and traditional as well as more recent and less familiar, it is equally attractive to the non scholar and casual student. Its conversational tone is non threatening, making it a pleasure to share with the family around the Shabbos table. It lends itself well to being read aloud, and even its style of footnoting is refreshingly easy to follow. The attractive paragraph-in-a-frame at the end of each chapter shows the writer’s pedagogical skill, for with this summary the reader knows exactly what has been discussed during that section.
I have nothing but admiration for this charming collection of activities that we can do on Shabbos and look forward to seeing this become a reference work that just about everyone can use.
