Since 1998, Marc S. Firestone has served Management Brokers, Inc., as a long-term care, life, and disability insurance broker. During his time away from the office, Marc S. Firestone enjoys writing articles about Judaism and entertaining people in his home for the Sabbath. The Hebrew word Sabbath translates to “rest.” On the Sabbath, members of the Jewish faith are encouraged to step back from the trials of everyday life which is so critical these days. Learning spiritual wisdom is an ideal activity for the Sabbath. For individuals who regularly volunteer, the Sabbath can also be used as a day for self-reflection. Finally, the Sabbath is the perfect excuse to disconnect from the daily media barrage and engage in conversation with a friend, family member, or a complete stranger. Others may use the day to converse with themselves and finally take on a personal dilemma or internal source of stress.
