Dealing with the details of religious ritual observance is not often the subject of public discussion by prominent politicians. Senator Joseph Lieberman, who moves confidently in the highest echelons of political office, has maintained his observance of the Jewish Sabbath throughout his years in the government. The Gift of Rest: Rediscovering the Beauty of the Sabbath is Senator Lieberman’s exploration of the profound impact observance of the Sabbath has had on him. In the book, he shares his experiences, some humorous and some serious, drawn from a lifetime of public service, as he combined loyalty to his faith with responsibility to his office. Senator Lieberman’s reflections on the significance of the Sabbath and how Sabbath observance has enriched his life and the lives of those around him are a call to spirituality to those in high office as well as an inspiration to the man and woman of the street.
