Shabbat

Shabbat (The Sabbath)

This is celebrated on the seventh day of the week.  It is a day of rest and worship.  It was given to commemorate the Creation and to confirm G-d’s special relationship with His Chosen People.  It is very important to observe Shabbat, more so than any of the holidays, as it is G-d’s fourth commandment, “Remember the day, Shabbat, to set it apart for G-d.”

Scriptural references:  Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:8-11, 31:14-15; Leviticus 23:3; Isaiah 56:6-7; Hebrews 4:9-10
