OT172 – Practicing the Sabbath with Community – Daniel Goldstein with Julia Fisher

Nov 21, 2013

Julia Fisher talks to Daniel Goldstein – Live in Israel and you are immediately aware of the Sabbath. Religious or not, Israelis value the Sabbath as a day of rest so when I saw a book in Jerusalem called ‘Practicing the Sabbath with Community’ I was intrigued to meet its author – Daniel Goldstein. We met at the Bible Society book shop in Jaffa Street, Jerusalem where Daniel works. He was born into a Jewish family in America and came to live in Israel in 2007. I started by asking him why he decided to leave a comfortable life in the US for the challenges of living in Israel.

Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
