      Israeli poet Sarah Feld reads from her latest book of poetry inspired from living in the Jewish heartland of Israel. She also talks about her unique new calendar the Shabbat Calendar in which the Day of Rest is literally the center of the week. The unique hexagon format has the six days of the week surrounding the Sabbath day, which is in the middle of the page. "The Shabbat Calendar emphasizes the significance of Shabbat and returns it to the center where it belongs. It's a constant reminder of the centrality of the day of rest for body, mind and soul," Feld stated. At the bottom of each page is a quote from a famous Jewish figure about the Sabbath day.
