What is Shabbat?

Shabbat is the most important day of worship in the home. It is celebrated on the seventh day of every week from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday in order to observe the commandment to remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. Exodus 20:8-10
