Where We Live: Observing The Sabbath With Joe Lieberman

Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman might be the most well-known observer of the Sabbath in American life.

Lieberman has written a new memoir called “The Gift of Rest: Rediscovering the Beauty of the Sabbath.” He takes you through a magical place he visits each Friday night at sundown called “Shabbatland.” But it’s not just a place with no work, no car, no TV. It provides for him a place of peace, conversation and family.

We’ll talk with Senator Lieberman about the role religion has played in his life and his political career...and how he’s balanced his religious observation with his job in politics.
