Spacetime, Sabbath-Bride

"...the severing of space gives way to linear time, which in turn creates memory..

...The Sabbath is the time when the eternal can be felt. Jewish tradition has metaphorized the Sabbath as a bride, whose union with the home she enters symbolizes the final union of Israel and God. That divine union is prophesied in Ezekiel (37) in the story of the valley of the dry bones, where the dead Israelite tribes are resurrected and gathered together in Israel.

..The Sabbath gives us a taste of this eternal peace, when God's work will be finished once again."
