An Interview with Shabbat - Fiction

An Interview with Shabbat - Fiction:
Leonard: My next guest is known throughout the world as the Holy Sabbath. He’s written a new book called Shabbat: Make My Day, and I’m very pleased that it brings Shabbat back to our show. Hello.
Shabbat: It’s great to be here, Leonard.
Leonard: Your first book was a memoir, My Days of Rest. This book is also about Shabbat. How is it different?
Shabbat: My new book tells you what you can do to maximize your enjoyment of Shabbat, the meaning behind some of the more popular Shabbat customs, and I give my recipe for gefilte fish.
