The Week: A History of the Unnatural Rhythms That Made Us Who We Are
Hosted By: My Jewish Learning
We take the seven-day week for granted, yet the week is an artificial construction of the modern world. Join My Jewish Learning for a conversation with Professor David M. Henkin about his newly-released book, The Week: A History of the Unnatural Rhythms That Made Us Who We Are. Henkin investigates the evolution of the seven-day week, rooted in ancient Jewish laws, and how our attachment to its rhythms influences how we live.
