Review:

Friday Night and Beyond is a novel, fresh, and long-needed guide to the spiritual depth and halachic program of the Shabbat. It is a must-have for everyone getting back on the track. Often we emphasize the depth and beauty of Shabbat, leaving the new Ba'al Teshuvan to his own devices in incorporating this beauty into the reality of his or her life. The most informative shiurim are valueless without training the person in 'how to bring it home' like long-practiced Jews, and thereby truly reclaiming our way of life. (Rabbi Maurice Lamm)

This is a warm and wonderful book that describes some of the most life-enhancing aspects of Jewish tradition in inviting, accessible terms. Reading Friday Night and Beyond is like joining an especially joyous and informative family table as an honored Shabbat guest. (Michael Medved)

The Sabbath is a foundation stone of Jewish life, both spiritual and social. But the gap between those who have not tasted its sweetness and inspiration, and the mode of traditional Sabbath observance seems almost unbridgeable. Friday Night and Beyond by Lori Palatnik provides such a bridge, for the uninitiated as well as the initiated. She does so painstakingly, engagingly, with an exaltation that hovers over every detail―and above all in both current idiom and profound love for both Sabbath and every Jew. (Rabbi Nachman Bulman)
