      Dear Mrs. Horowitz,I enjoy your lectures on YU Torah. If I may make a suggestion prior to your next contribution on the subject of Time. With brevity I submit, if you can look into R. Abraham Joshua Heschel's short sefer - The Sabbath. It may be the most powerful work you encounter on the Sabbath, Time, space and to some extent technology. I know people living in the 5 Towns from modern Orthodox to Black Hat who would not be here if not for that book. It is transformative to those not yet Shomer Shabbat and yes even those that are. I say that because it instills a closer connection and appreciation. Yes, R. Heschel may have been somewhat controversial but not really. He was a Frum Yid, a true thinker, scholar, poet, theologian and doer in the name of Judaism. If you do take the time...to read a bit of that book understand it was written over 60 years ago in English by a man who only learned English in his mid 30's and the Rav is quoted as saying " I wish I could write like Heschel." That may not be an exact quote, but it is what JJ Schachter told me.All the best,Harold Klein
