"For those whose Shabbos experience has been hitherto tenuous and colorless, this work will serve to kindle a flame of feeling and warmth. Those whose Shabbosim have already been spiritually elevated may glean from these writing a deeper understanding of things already familiar to them and use them to raise their spirituality even higher." - Rabbi Yisroel Belsky
